The dynamics of the architecture within these paintings are geometrically impossible, making the painted spaces ceaselessly unsatisfied in their want to be occupied, stuck forever as two-dimensional impostors of three-dimensional spaces. The ceaseless desire to be "real architecture" turns these structures into metaphors for the existence of an "authentic" identity, which so often causes divisions between insaneness and outsideness and is called into question by postmodern identity are so pervasive, I am driven to put work into the world that gives a visual metaphor through which we may begin to understand the imagined qualities of our pursuits of so-called truths of who we assume ourselves to be.
