The drawings can appear dramatic or even theatrical and the spaces that occur lean toward the ceremonial or even megalithic. They can hold a lineage with something ancient, cold, solid and eternal, pieced together in a heterogeneous puzzle and are mostly made or designed spaces that rarely depict the natural world, all but the sky which appears vast, heavenly and unattainable. The subjects that inhabit these spaces are organic forms that bare a relation to the human figure, but are reduced in there physicality to suit the purpose of their task or staged environment, often wrapped in a leathery skin and are intended to equally represent what they are not, in as much as they represent what they are. They are limited, they are ignorance exposed in matter, moving leathery matter, that blindly participates, imitates and self-sacrifices, in infinite timeless words that they themselves construct. Their position is conditioned, an inheritance of opaque values that has been passed down. To question or trace any origins would only insight further fear and doubt, so it is better for all, if they hold tongues in a collective parade of prescribed rapture and keep their mouthless mouths shut.
In their longing to understand they have formed ideological truths in the form of gods and heavens and seek to imitate them, they dream of utopias and a balanced social order, but all their attempts can do is show their own fallible nature. They buy salvation in their industrialism and build walls and monuments, in an unconscious attempt to pave over there feeling of abandonment. Their very skin is a protective lair from the harshness of their preserved reality.
They appear ungendered but an underlying sexuality can be sensed, victims of primal urges that stand in the way of their enlightenment. The repressed and unexpressed are desplayed externally in involuntary gestures, cast in a shadow-less light of their eternity.
