The uncanny picks up on aspects of the terror sublime, emphasizing the conditions
whereby in addressing the experience we are also confronting a strange and often
unsettling otherness.
~ Simon Morley

The Santa Ana paintings describe the often brutal intersection between the built landscape
and the rhythms of nature. Uncanny and otherworldly, they speak to the terror sublime,
impermanency, and to how our very conception of nature and wildness are progressively
influenced by the artificial.
