I am an Unreliable Narrarator from Planet Eerth

The work comes from a place called “Eerth.” Eerth is Earth askew, more surreal, less rational, a way of thinking and dissociating. My preoccupation with science fiction brought me to this thought experiment. If I make work as if I am on Eerth my work reflects Eerth, or an off-kilter Earth. The paintings are true terrestrial moments of surreality. I build a hierarchy of visuals through selective focusing. The play between soft image and sharp brush strokes approximate the atmosphere of the unreal moment. The sculptures are illusions; they describe what I wish were true. I wish the Mars Rover would gain self awareness or that there were artifacts proving humans had six toes. I push these longings into three dimensions to make the view from here more Eerthly.

Visiting Planet Eerth

In this series of paintings I am considering what it would be like to have an original interaction with the Earthly landscape. While painting, I thought of Earth as being mistakenly pronounced “Eerth.” Imagining an extra-terrestrial, notoriously perceived as inhuman and cold, warming at the touch of a gentle Earthly breeze and having moments of existential crisis as it catches a glimpse of itself in a river bank. Finding myself in moments of manic awe of my Earthly landscape I slipped into the mindset of “Eerth” to grapple with its unfamiliarity.

What if I'm too busy to notice the apocolypse?
