Oil painter. My work explores the modern human condition. The exponential rate of change in modern society over the last century has shown us just how fluid and malleable our very identity as human beings can be. And, as we seem to be in the midst of a massive global paradigm shift, its becoming harder to fully understand our purpose, our future, and our connection to the world around us. What new existential blueprints will we discover? If we look at the pervading trends in the development of human society, they seems to be guided by some subconscious pursuit to live in a world we have created. We manipulate our environment more than any other known life form. We conform the world to suit our needs, our ideals, and our insatiable curiosity; and often times, at great cost to the very environment which has given birth to us. Are we subconsciously trying to escape the physical world? Are we compelled to integrate all of our thoughts and form a collective consciousness? Or is there some uncontainable desire to fully assimilate into a reality we have built with our own minds? Where will this force lead us, and how will it redefine what it is to be human?
