I’ve decided that what I’m really painting has nothing to do with industrial sites.  I’m actually painting worlds within worlds, shifting perspectives and string theory.  Objects don’t hold together-they decompose and reassemble simultaneously. They become other things.  Interiors of wheels become terrariums teeming with life.  I try and create an adventure for the viewer when they navigate a visual path in a painting.  I place “holes” or “portals” for them to fall in or escape through and obstacles to hurdle.  In “Seam”, (on the bottom left side), I created a portal that leads completely out of the painting.  Your eye is drawn there to see the details of what is inside the circular shape.   Instead, one’s eye is lead off the edge of the painting onto the floor.
