You'll love Jack if: your superpower is having conversations with children without regressing to baby talk.
"My work deals with gentle decay of landscapes and objects. Using drawing, painting, and photography I create spaces reminiscent or directly linked to the Pacific northwest where I grew up. I explore how family, home, and relationships inform this space and often rely on a variety or mark making and color palettes to articulate what I see. With this place comes notions of American idealism, and the beauty of nature decaying in ways both natural and unnatural. I’m interested in fantastical realism, implicit sadness, vulnerability, awkward tension, and the aging that comes through the work as I explore how time effects space. "
