This is an embodiment of man’s integration with his surroundings in unity and harmony. I aim to portray a ‘magic realism’ that edifies the mind of the viewer, confronts him with captivating possibilities, and enables him to make numerous discoveries in the density and details.
This work explores memory as the intersection of reality and imagination. There is a creation in the act of remembering—a reconfiguring of reality. Memory allows us to rediscover and give new meaning to previously unnoticed details.
Exist within this world of memories and be submerged in a paradise of forgotten scents and sensations. View these paintings not as windows, but as doors through which to enter into with a childlike trust, wonder, and a sense of mystery.
You can hold these bits of paradise, not seizing them as entitlements, but as gifts to be used with humility and restraint, that you may re-enchant the disenchanted and celebrate the unspoiled and the harmonious. Use these as your ways of access.
