I am continually interested in the formal cues used in spatial representation as platforms to both investigate and subvert our perceptions. Horizon lines, fissures, architectures and panoramas found within a landscape are opportunities that I use to build new spaces within the field of my canvas. It is my hope that the finished result points towards a hope that is greater than the painting and opens a dialogue that lives beyond the picture plane.
