Unfamiliar theatre/Unknown stage
These landscapes are the landscapes of not knowing. They are conversations between opposing painterly forces and capture an engagement with a subject whose form is determined in part by the consciousness by which it is observed. However, this subject looks back and is sensitive to the observers preconceptions and it has sway over how it is seen. These paintings are full of contradictions, nonsense, misinterpretation and most importantly, play. They are concrete, yet the phenomena they attempt to stand in for are fleeting, ethereal and unpredictable. These paintings are a tangible expression but there is no essence here.
