My series of paintings featuring tree people (treople?) is one where I focus on various aspects of the human condition, but I choose to represent that aspect using figures crafted from trees. The purpose of this is to show the experience rather than show someone specific experiencing the experience. Instead of seeing a person, this approach forces the viewer to see the experience first.

Additionally, I've made a specific stylistic change in the work I produce in 2021 treople when compared to the first series from 2009 by cutting away portions of the background. The background shows that these figures are rooted in the natural world, but during the experience we transcend the boundaries of the world around us.

With Atlas I've tried to illustrate one of the most shared of experiences across humanity - feeling the weight of the world on your shoulders. From the seemingly small things like what to cook for dinner, to the sleepless nights worrying about those in your charge. The consequences of ticking this box over that box. Demand letters and pleas for help. The world would be easier to bare with a little help, and people should do more of that for each other.
