Our inclination to find significant forms in random and chaotic stimuli is a well documented psychological phenomenon called pareidolia. Using this property, the artist makes a colorful, nebulous abstraction become figurative. Within the fertile surface we are invited to imagine courtesans and witches, sorcerers and prophets, healers and hypnotists. You see what you want, it dissolves, and you see something else.
