"My work is centered around a blurring of time and realities. The figures I paint are set inside scenes of a future dystopia but touch on themes of old mythologies and older magic; the kind of half-truths and false memories that persist through generations. I set out to capture the fear and wonder I feel as the world seems to collapse further daily and re-contextualize it into a fairy-tale-esque nightmare which pits the transcendental and inexplicable against the concrete and the accepted reality. This tension hints at the evil and mystery lurking just under the surface." - David Thomas
