When my father taught me to play chess at age 8, I was immediately fascinated by the magic of the ever unfolding drama in this miniature world.
In my art, I try to bring that magic to life by merging chess and real world elements into a scene. I call these scenes “ChessScapes”.
Through my ChessScapes I create images to challenge the viewer’s imagination. Each work represents a meticulously crafted virtual world, inviting one to step in and explore.
I like to inject a little mystery into the mix, which leaves much to discover upon further examination. Look for what’s in the reflections – it may not be what you expect, or notice the positions on the board – it may be an unsolved chess problem!
