Catalogue Note

"Artists like Bosch and Bruegel leave plenty of room for mystery. I’m trying to make those kinds of paintings. If I take a visual language like that and I’m super inspired by natural history art as well and then I apply it to a place like California—there are all of these possibilities that weren’t there before for anyone else. So I might paint like a 19th century natural history guy, but I have an opportunity to tell a story that they could never tell."
