STATEMENT

 

"Nature in all its forms feeds my creativity. I like to work symbolically with the elusive power of animals. Like people, they are expressive, complex, and multi-dimensional: they lend themselves to multi-media applications, and help me express my more dreamlike visions.

Lately I have enjoyed using paradoxes, contradictions, and juxtapositions in magic-realistic landscapes. Examples of this include my painting Spirit Carrots, where giant carrots manifest in a dry stony desert, or Hunter or Prey, where a hare/woman and a four-eyed coyote, has altered their traditional balance of power. Such ironic narratives evoke a surprise and a giggle that seems to sharpen my vision" - Dorthe Wolff Sørensen
