"This newer piece features multiple forms all residing in this communal space. The viewer is able to construct, de-construct, and re-construct what the scene before them depicts. From the two figures that nestle into one another to the enigmatic forms that hover over the river circles, to the slumbering heads encroached into the tree-like form as though in surveillance or in captive depending on how one is able to observe them. As well as featuring the dense quasi-foliage that provides a surrealist interpretation of a landscape- one whose reality is disparate to our own. What is created is a Distant conundrum- a gathering of unfamiliar and alien forms yet the serenity imbued can highlight what is truly most alien in the scene - us. Of the ensemble, we, the imposing viewer, feel the most unnatural before its presence. We, in this instant of observing the piece, are transported to this out of our understood reality view. In the moment seeing the scene, in its undisturbed and serene state before our access to this plane of existence is inevitably revoked."
