There is a squid that lives deep in the ocean where it is completely dark. It has light-emitting bacteria in its tentacles and it waves them around in a dance when divers encounter them. This is a squid the size of a cat. I wonder to myself… “What are squid thoughts?” My art is fueled by curiosity about the wonder and mysteries of the world. Current topics I am exploring are the sacred, the mundane, the divine, and our relationships with animals. I am working on a body of small walnut ink paintings that are inspired by photos from the early 20th Century. Topics include Modernism, Spiritualism, fairies, and Orientalism in their various forms—the sincere, the fraudulent, and the pretended.
