"A mind not to be change'd by Place or Time"
October 1 - 29, 2012
We are all strangers to the night, our own minds struggle to make sense of the darkness letting our own feelings be projected directly onto the world. We try to take that darkness and drive it back with artificial lights intending to duplicate the world of daylight, but instead we create stages of normalcy in between the depths of what our imagination can dream into the darkness. In my paintings I try to recreate the mental state where our minds revert to the most primal instincts of fight or flight in the face of the unknown, despite our knowledge of what exists in the daylight.
