Artist’s Statement

Like Hieronymus Bosch, whose paintings are filled with chimera committing unimaginable acts, and enigmatic symbolism scholars have claimed to be essentially undecipherable, my visual narratives will also force viewers to arrive at their own conclusions. The intent is to keep things unsettled.
What will be consistent in each photograph is the presence of the landscape: forests, beaches, wild gardens and bodies of water. I’m interested in establishing a friction between the natural beauty of the environment and the questionable actions being carried out by the protagonists.
