Art has always been about the exploration of other worlds to me. It
is a medium to view the world with a different perspective and to find
elements of beauty in what seems ordinary. I want to transport myself,
and my audience into a mirror existence.
That’s what “Descants
Cadences” is — I want this book to be a window to invite you in to
participate with my visions. For the artwork in this collection I’ve
been feeling along the boundary between dream and reality. I’ve delved
into the language of allegory that we’re all exposed to from the very
first nursery rhyme that we hear as a child, and rediscover when we read
to our own children. I’ve sought after tiny worlds of wonder from an
insect’s viewpoint. I love to get lost in the incredible beauty of
growth and decay that you find in nature.
Most of these pieces
were created over the past three years and have never been published in
any other volume. It includes the Magpie pieces from my sold out series
that I showed at Krab Jab Studio, as well as paintings from my other
popular series — The Stag Sonata Cycle, Insecta, Strange Dreams and
more. The book is a stream of consciousness journey, following mythical
creatures like white stags and faerie queens, to much stranger guides
and masked creatures.
