Untitled (2017) is a painting comprising unidentified spaces inhabited by playful figures, geometric symbols, and objects suggestive of another world. Flat, bright color is a background to flat life forms in a space where quirk constitutes the entire ecosystem. Perspective is absent, but nature is still present. The players and objects are eerily familiar—the artist manages deftly to juxtapose the normally three-dimensional states of joy, uncertainty, and repose onto one layer, emphasizing the sheer artifice involved in the creation of the work.
