Art provides avenues of exploration, a process of the figure escaping into a space beyond. Her work emphasizes the imaginative mind, a liminal space that dares us to cross boundaries of physical distance and time. It reveals the psychological process of reclaiming childhood and its limitless possibilities.
She explains, “Many believe they’ve lost that sense of wonder and curiosity. These things are associated with children, their lack of knowing, their innocence. As we grow older, we lose our innocence and sense of wonder because we believe we know. We know so there is no more to explore. We know so there’s no use in wondering, no use for the imagination.” She uses themes of outer space and the deepest depths of the ocean to take the viewer where no one has yet explored, a place unknown, to trigger and open that space in the viewer’s mind that has long been abandoned, the imagination.
