dream machine

2010 – Mixed media on stretched canvas 28″ x 42″ – SOLD

This painting formed around the dream I have of there being a hidden design or intelligence behind the chaos of daily life.  At first glance this design can seem maniacle, threatening and alien.  Looking deeper, it can look like a manevolent clock directing our paths through an age-old predictable path.  Upon even closer inspection, I see a mechanical washing machine, distilling, consuming and cleaning the universe of dumb luck.


I like the chaos and the depth – it draws me in but also pushes me out and I dig that energy.
