ABOUT

Reality is all in your head. When I was a child, I had a fever-induced hallucination. Colours took on texture and depth, while voices slowed to a deep crawl. I knew then that reality was open to interpretation.

That’s exactly what our brains are doing: interpreting reality. Processing sensory input to paint a picture inside our heads. But that picture can be flawed. And it’s mostly blank canvas, denied to us by the limited palette of our senses. From dark matter to ultraviolet light, the bulk of our universe lies beyond our perceptions. But there are cracks in the foundation of our familiar reality. Ways we can expand our senses. Through stories and painting, I strive to break through those cracks and grab a slice of unreality.
