Evolution is a fascinating and thought provoking subject. When one thinks about the innumerable amount of species that have lived and become extinct throughout history, thoughts of how the human race adapts to the changing environment and what our evolutionary destiny will be are brought to the fore. Emergent Properties is a series of large-scale paintings that explores how the convergence of graphic shapes, patterns, and gestured abstractions can create imagery that is both unfamiliar and uncanny. This work exists in the space between representation and abstraction, and intentionally blurs the lines between landscape, structure, and figuration. Hybridization in the work becomes a metaphor for evolution, and the resulting imagery suggests alternate life forms.
