MARS-1 invites the viewer to use their own imagination to develop storylines from his paintings. MARS-1 focuses on bringing intangible realms into existence. He explores what he describes as "the sixth sense, or extra-sensory perception and levels of reality," filtered out by the mind in modern society. He grasps these abstract qualities of existence through his ethereal landscapes.
"With so much that we don't understand, it's easy to put blinders on and have a narrow view of what we perceive instead of keeping the mind open." Expressing these thoughts onto his wood panel surface, MARS-1 creates a mysterious, multi-dimensional realm with both familiar and unfamiliar spaces to explore and to heighten this awareness for the viewer.
