Artist's Statement:
"Gamma Gods is a series of paintings depicting the abstraction, terror and wonder of the cosmos and dimensions beyond. I touch upon the concept of multi-dimensional travel, alien life, the birth and death of the universe and the balance between good and evil. With space being infinite to the point where it can no longer be adequately raises the question "Is there life beyond our world?" I feel it is only a matter of time before this is factually proven and alien life becomes science. It is this revelation that I find interesting...what happens to contemporary views on religion and philosophy once we know that life is infinite and we are not alone. How will religion on Earth scramble to fit this information comfortably within their dogmas? Will our rapid understanding of science and technology dawn a rebirth in human existence or will it be too much for us to handle and spiral out of control?"
