This piece began with the dark violet brush strokes, mostly covered, though some still visible. Then painted over, masked areas create bulbous organic forms and botanical shapes in electric hues. Like a jungle in Wonderland of mystery and fantasy.

Everyone paints their own image, either via social media, the clothes we wear, the friends we have, the stories we tell. All of it composes the idea of who we are and how we are perceived. Like camouflage amongst foliage or foggy dreams and memories; this work represents a narrative based on subverting messages, changing appearances, finding safe spaces, and the nerve to wake up and do it all over again.
