In these paintings I continue to use the image of a puzzle piece to explore what I think of as a kaleidoscopic perspective, a way of seeing that is continually moving and also capable of accommodating ambiguity. But now the figurative aspect of the puzzle shape has emerged quite dominantly. It seems to me both human and architectural, inseparable from its surroundings, individualistic yet identical.

                 The compelling narrative for me is the speed at which we're moving -- evolving too fast for a singular, static narrative. Like a kaleidoscope our individual perceptions shape and reshape what we see, as our focus shifts from one set of relationships to another.
