If you have to define my work historically, then it resembles Surrealisms. The part of Surrealism that particularly appeals to me is the sub-conscience or psychological bridging of fantasy and reality. In my work, my subject matter is recognizable to the human eye, but is oversimplified and very stylized. A tree, rock, hill or building can be recognized as such, but it will be handled in such a manner as to look unnatural, unreal and fantastic.
