The recent work is both figurative and non-figurative about things we do not really understand.
I use oil paint, graphite and dry pigment to try to capture lightly and and simply some essential parts of our lives, those we all experience and those we are now being forced to look at.
The connectedness of everything living, including ourselves.
This is fact, not some wooly artist statement. Everything is dependent on everything else. Entanglement from the smallest particle to our whole planet.
