The body of work for Not Here Not Now consisted of three large narrative paintings depicting a cast of fictitious characters in various states of existence. These large paintings were shown in conjunction with several smaller paintings, a collection of clay figures, and a classification poster showing the creatures drawn in minute detail. The small paintings operated as portraits of specific creatures. Clay models of these characters were also shown in a display case, referencing their mythological archaeology. These different materials and forms allowed me to cross-fertilize information as I imagined and developed this fictitious cast. As a surfer, life is adjusted for time in the ocean, which is the departure point to my practice. Polluted and hypoxic areas of the seas take the shapes of imagined forms that become characters in my work. Paint is a medium that directly relates to water with its various tactile and transformative qualities. The visceral quality of paint and clay, both malleable, makes the departure from the real and observable to the imagined seem natural.
