These new paintings offer viewers a variety of daydream spaces through a rich concoction of visual flavors. Amidst invented landscapes, viewers will find religious themes folded in with buttercream, seals, skeletons, chocolate bunnies, styrofoam, gelatin molds, petit-fours and shark fins.
Swim is about diving in, being present and noticing through paint. Water, as a metaphor for life, swirls around us as the tides and currents shift. Sometimes things sparkle with clarity, and at other times scale, depth, color and perspective are distorted. Whether the details are murky or crisp, the feelings of place and self are true.
