Good art activates the imagination

When an interaction such as a mental dialogue or a mental journey occur when viewing a piece of art, when attention is directed into a state of suspended time, or perhaps a nonlinear sense of narrative, the imagination is challenged. Challenging imagination to go to work creates a stimulation to to the mind of the intentional viewer of art. My work takes many different paths as I seek to speak to the idea of boundlessness,  but often it is grounded in a conditioned commonality of everyday existence.
