For the last two years I have been looking at the ways in which we inhabit our environment. I begin with an interest in studying utopian visions from the past. The “Inflatable” series of paintings reflects my desire to re-examine the often absurd projections of future civilization, particularly from the mid 20th century. While I revel in the beauty of these visions of the future from the 1950’s and 1960’s, the ugliness of what our civilization actually became is equally interesting. This train of thought led me to my most recent series of paintings, which are focused on the contemporary urban environment.
