The pieces featured in “Footprints in Space” seem to be jumbled as if created on different planets. In some pictures, lightly sketched figures are cleverly integrated into oil color backgrounds. Seemingly common faces and objects are contrasted heavily with the surreal, otherworldly environment. The figures’ lack of color challenges exactly which part is alien, their slightly smudged features a nod at their own ephemerality. Each sketch is trapped within the confines of robust oil colors bordering the edges. In other paintings, vibrant colors roam free and swirl across the picture. Despite the lack of clear subjects, the movement of each pieces alludes to a life of their own. The series recognizes the vibrancy of life in all forms.
