BODIES IN THE MOUNTAIN   The mountain as a living, mythical organism has played a large role in my life. During my childhood, it was a source for creating personal stories about fantastic beings, which nurtured my psychological and philosophical connections to it. The mountain/ torso series is an evolving group of work investigating my fascination with the mountain silhouette and the arrangement of forms within the larger form. My mountain paintings are my body and my mind, broken up and reordered in infinite ways.
