All Things Come Apart explores the changing of state from order to disorder, attempting to capture that perfect composition that harmoniously exists in between. I Rather than using loose shapes, squiggles and structural lines to simply capture ideas on discarded bits of paper, these preliminary marks have become the very basis of the works. Seamlessly fused with bubbles, material textures, geometric shapes, and bodily elements, the artist creates layers for his floating and spacious compositions. One of the main constructs within these works is the newly introduced three dimensional elevation. The introduction of this to his scenes, add a surrealist mood to the works: the treatment of shadows and the weighting of the elements somehow create a believability to the fantastical and impossible arrangement of forms, floating in a dreamlike space.
