"My work has always been influenced by the primordial forms suggested by the kudzu-covered trees that line Florida’s highways most of the year. Those ambiguous shadowy forms, reminiscent of the birth of galaxies and the end of civilization, suggest to me simultaneously scenes from the distant past and the distant future. My paintings share many formal qualities with this kind of messy organic growth as a way of engaging with the sublime dread of deep time, and as a representation of how the haunted history of the southern landscape echoes out into our everyday lives."
