The mind is patterns and layers a matrix of possibilities that builds up over a lifetime. This conglomeration we call self, a subjective centre from which we try and make a personal story. These paintings are hinting at that possibility. Crowded assemblages of images, some real some not so real that attempt to draw the viewer further inward into the archetypal world of the unconscious. On a conscious level, you the viewer, can either enjoy the surface images that float on the surface or absorb them finding your own level of meaning. I want you to wander through the streets the dead ends, the levels, the colours and start free associating.
