There is great depth to the work that only seeing it in person will make apparent, but even still, the landscape of these universes draws you in and captivates, presenting distances, short and long, dramatically and free from optimal point of view. They are truly an opportunity to lose yourself into the multi-dimensional fields of shapes and colors.
