Transfer of a photograph from a camping trip when I was young. The memory of the boy holding a snake is one that I often return to. I have made, and continue to make, several paintings exploring this image.

STATEMENT

In my art, there is a sense of contemplation or of reverie that speculates on fundamental mysteries – this being the result of a lot of camping under an expansive sky in the northern Canadian wilderness. There, questions emerged regarding the existence of something much larger than the immediate world. I am very interested in a moment where the past, present, and future collide. Modes of my current environment, laced with reflection, memory, and speculation, filter into the development and translation of the work. This disjunction demands a layered approach in both the meaning and implementation of the artwork. The pieces end up feeling like some sort of phenomenon (either natural or supernatural) has occurred, or is occurring. They are at once primitive, timely, and futuristic.
