Gothic Underground

2021 Oil and Acrylic on Canvas 36″(H) x 24″(W)

My paintings reveal the hidden world below the soil’s surface while illuminating nature’s simultaneous beauty and mystery.

To imply the energy in this biosphere, I portray the processes deep in the Earth with glowing colors. Utilizing the paint’s fluidity, I create otherworldly spaces interspersed with insects and eccentric microscopic forms referenced from nature. I paint with a range of techniques within one canvas, mixing the mutability of abstraction with figurative detail. My objective is to awaken an emotional and scientific thought process while posing the question, “does life colonize up from the depths or down from the surface?”
