Fantastic worlds and mystical dreamscapes enact the absurdity of human existence in my porcelain works, encaustic panels and prints. The works in this exhibition combine primordial plant forms such as yuccas, agaves and cacti, with fanciful figures and imagined landscapes. Magicians signal a quest, fantastic creatures interact and medieval monsters are guardians of future possibilities.
Inhabiting these small works are creatures from the Renaissance historia animalium of Conrad Gesner, humorous figures from 16th century French humanist and artist François Rabelais, contemporary Japanese "kawaii", pop-imagination figures and toys and grotesque historical imagery. This cast of creatures and plants is combined to create various peculiar and curious scenarios. My characters live in a world where nothing is certain.
