I want to communicate the experience of looking backwards, inwards and into other realms. I wish to conjure the joy and mystery of childhood in my work and the surreal nature of humans at play. Playing with materials allows one to bridge the gaps between reality and the imagination. And so here, one suspects, is the crux of the matter: in exposing a world of the uncanny, what is revealed may be realer than real. There are fantasies in our worlds, mysticism even. I seek to wake in us the sense we had as children, that the invisible exists beside the visible.
