"It’s very dark at night. I’ m on a bicycle and on my lap is the cutest baby girl. Her head is round and full. As I’m passing cars on the road at high speed I saw a very large man running from behind. He's catching up with us. His face looks bruised and beaten up. There's blood and open wounds on his face and chest. He cuts us off and as we stop he yells, “Pay me $800! Or just give me the baby!” He opens his right hand and I see he's holding a very large sharp knife. I know that he's going to stab me. I tell the baby, “Don’t worry, nobody will take you from me!” And I reach for a gun in my pocket and shoot the man in his head. His entire head blows off. And then we keep on biking. And crows fly overhead and lead the way."
"Eating my own Shadow", are paintings in mixed media [acrylic, oil, and graphite] on canvasses prepared with rabbit skin glue. The painted images are imaginary and invite curiosity. It is a deeply subjective perspective of the dream experience. No logical answers are given to answer what the dream means. Questions remain. The viewer is left wondering. The feelings evoked are non-conscious, archaic, and deep. The dream images with their vaguely palpable bodies touch one like a strange wind. They speak, if at all.

I explore how the experiences of being human is felt within a physical body that is made from dust, dirt, and mud. The human body changes as the biological machine is under continuous threats of aging, decay, and microbes. My physical body is the template for my emotional life. My physical body is the unconscious of what I become aware of. The care for my body requires sustenance, hydration, sex, and sleep. Slowly my body suffers many little deaths every day.
