OUTPOST SATURN

OUTPOST SATURN 18" x 18"x 2"

I call my work MINDSCAPES...interior landscapes, subconscious worlds, dreams...

The images I create originate from my childhood...old movies, stories told by relatives, popular culture; all these things are in each of us one way or another. Memories half remembered and altered emerge as archetypes in our lives. And these archetypes run as threads through our lives. What are they, how did they originate and why do they have meaning for us? These are questions I raise in my work. Everything that is visible in our lives hides something that is invisible....something subconscious and its meaning is obscured. The liberation of the hidden mind through images becomes real and what was immaterial becomes seen. The landscape of the mind is what interests me....
