Artist Statement

BITUMEN
PAINTINGS

My aim is to create a composition that goes far beyond the canvas surface. If a picture is worth a thousand words, it is my goal to create art that will evoke emotions and stimulate conversation. Inspired by the natural world, I juxtapose the opposite extremes of industrial development with wildlife’s inherent beauty in an attempt to conceptually capture the intersection of global industrialization and global symbiosis.

Artist Statement

MIXED MEDIA

Oil Sands Mixed Media seamlessly fuse macro photography with raw oil sands in an aim to expand upon one’s perception of Canada’s most controversially utilized resource, formulating it beyond its utilitarian history and social dogma. I aim to conceptually demonstrate human polarity, mutual dependency and interconnectivity with the environment through material appropriation, form and composition. The result is a collection of works that will immerse viewers in a new world. Offering a transformative look at one of earth’s oldest substances.
