explores the vast landscape of myths, legends, theologies and spiritual traditions that have been manufactured by our cultural collective. These paintings juxtapose different stories and characters in an attempt to create a friction between these elements and reveal some insight into the relevance of the stories being explored. Stylistically the paintings mimic this sentiment. Pattern, graphic form and flesh are layered in a way intent on reflecting the accumulation which occurs over time as stories build up to become working mythologies. Each painting also breaks different realities within itself, pushing from a flat space of pattern into three-dimensional space and back again. This in meant to challenge the viewer’s own sense of reality and push them into reimagining the way they perceive the heap of religious belief systems handed down to us by way of a thousand generations of dreamers, psychedelic explorers and answer seekers.
