My writing and studio practice wander through the spaces and gaps provided by fiction and the world in search of imagination, the real, belief and the thread that binds them to us and how we see ourselves. The work makes use of fairy tale, fable, dream, myth, allegorical novella, moral play, and magical realism. My journeys propel the viewer/reader from forest to field using wit, emotion, discovery and joy. Beyond the fable, I take pleasure in the process and history of two dimensional work. Formally, I attempt to intermingle drawing and painting in a challenge to space, form, ground, surface, decoration and abstraction that toys with tradition and novelty. I will soon be adding video and images from my ongoing lengthy animation, titled “root, feather, butterfly: a fox’s tail”.
