In a classically inspired narrative that looks at the idea of passage as both a means of access and a turning point or crossroads, the series of paintings entitled Signs for Travelers offers up a simplified visual logic that acts as a mirror to the human condition. Dark humour prevails as anthropomorphic forms evolving from underground tunnels, caves and rail systems play at the boundary between visual sign and physical trigger.

Signs for Travelers, is a series of paintings, prints and works on paper that pushes into the realm of the psychological as well as the psychedelic. Through the overt appropriation of sign-like shaped panels and the manipulation and overprinting of specific iconic, cultural and physical sign significations; multiple and conflicting readings are encouraged to play out.
