this body of work is a multitude of questions. how do humans preserve the most basic elements of sustaining life? do we clean our waters and grow untreated vegetation here on earth? do we seek asylum elsewhere in the universe? what does the safe passage of our most delicate resources look like? how do we communicate this to each other?
these paintings are a narrative about the unknown. like a crystal ball they ask the viewer “what do you want to see in me?” They simultaneously ponder future plants in the universe and portray still life plants with positive energies. inspired by the transcendental painters of the turn of the century, these paintings combine light, geometry, and abstraction of organic matter to visualize the lighter side of an undoubtedly brutal extraterrestrial life. They also contemplate the study of positive speech and healing. In scientific studies, groups of plants grew bigger and better when they were praised or if music was played in their environment. if a plant can be physiologically effected by positive communication, then imagine what that means for more complex organisms like human life.
