Drawing on the vast archive of painting and sculpture throughout the ages, each painting in this body of work begins as an investigation into the dynamics of a significant work of art – pieces that have had a profound impact on my development as a painter. Historic works of art and significant celestial events have thrilled my imagination since I was young. I have drawn in museums from paintings and sculptures all over the world and I continue to explore, investigate and dissect historic and contemporary art. I have chased a solar eclipse, watched meteor showers through the night, experienced multiple lunar eclipses and seen ancient notations of astronomically significant events on the walls of canyons and caves. I am always looking - everywhere - in an attempt to see. These seemingly disparate conversations have had a profound impact on my work, separately, for years - the melding and coalescing of these obsessions inform the paintings simultaneously.
