A Statement by the artist for Knots and Loose Ends:
​Kurosawa’s film Dreams has a scene where a beautiful snow spirit drapes a fallen hiker with layer upon layer of shimmering fabric.

Despite their warmth, these blankets of snow, fatigue and slumber, must be shaken off for the hiker to survive. My recent paintings explore different connotations of drapery as a subject. Some are draped to evoke landscapes informed by recent events in the East where a mischievous Dokkebi threatens havoc. Some are bundled as packages to be gifted or stowed away, safekeeping treasures and secrets.
