In play, time slips away. Visual allusions occur, your mind broadens allowing new realities. These analog virtual-realty artworks — created initially for interior spaces — ended up “going out to play”. Once outside… they interwove with the natural environment they were inspired by, discovering multiple ways of being. Childlike wonder is essential to my approach to both materials and images. Sensual encounters, such as the pattern of clouds, the smell of dirt or the sound of birds calling take on meaning from our experiences and belief systems. In this way the patterns and connections we make, fact or fiction, become our reality.
