I use a marriage of figurative and organic growth to explore ideas of promise, resilience, tenacity, the passage of time & beauty. Flowers have a language of their own, one mostly lost to today's viewer. I am massing the blooms, allowing them to sprout undaunted from figures. They become a narrative about our actions/lives. The viewer is encouraged to lose themselves in the detail, weaving their own story about the human form as a vessel for growth. Layered marks create a sense of impermanence - dripping paint and peeks of arbitrary color build a dream-like scape, scale becomes irrelevant and thusly builds new relationships between the blooms and youth.
