When people see my work I’d like them to feel as if they’ve just been given a unique chance to view the busy everyday world, alone, for a moment. Daily life is easily overlooked even though there is a great deal of visual poetry associated with our surroundings.
Most art allows us to escape from our lives while dreaming that the grass is greener on the other side. The work I present here tries to explore the boundaries within our own fences.
