These paintings echo our fascination, and our innate fear of the living world. They confront us with strangeness. The rectangular space of the canvas displays captive chimeras, metamorphosing, moving and twisting.

Derived from a method whereby acrylic paint is both sprayed and spread, these monsters strike an incongruous touch among the youthful works presented here. They also give an initial glimpse of how structured, painted art is a means of rendering the living world. Between fright and emotion.
