Gods and Monsters is a series of paintings based on manipulated images of symmetrical trees. These trees appear somewhat hallucinatory –simultaneously commonplace and supernatural – both “tree” and “not tree”. I want the work to provoke viewers to doubt their perceptions and reconsider their quotidian experience of the natural world.



All works are oil on canvas
