It’s inevitable at different points in our lives that we’ll be faced with entering worlds that are outside of what we already know. Upon entering one of these new worlds, we can sometimes feel disoriented, disconnected, or isolated for a period of time.

Paintings of Another Universe is a series of paintings that explore the “what ifs” of an imaginary situation where a small number of humans suddenly exist within a fictional alien world. This series is about the feeling of being an outsider after entering an unfamiliar world, and about gradually finding one’s place within it. This narrative sits at the core of the series, and each painting serves to further explore this narrative and to further build the world within which it is taking place.
