Our lives are increasingly lived in a technological environment that isolates us from what is fundamental and real. The “techno bubble” makes it easy to forget that we are part of Nature, still surrounded by the age-old mysteries of life on this Earth. In my paintings I am trying to create a small, parallel reality that is a kind of distillation of my thoughts and experiences in this world. I want my work to serve as a reminder that there is a bigger, deeper, and more awesome world out there beyond the urban, technological world that most of us inhabit day-to-day. Robert D. Cocke
