Why Paint the Landscape?

Since the days of the cave paintings, humans have had the urge to document their environment, to find their place and mark their spot.     The desire to locate oneself, to indicate one’s position and the relative scale of one’s surroundings is universal. 

My paintings tell the story of my own journey through the landscape, my engagement with the earth’s highs points and valleys. Familiar landmarks are markers, units of measurement, reference points in the accumulation of urban and industrial forms. 

I tell it in the hope that it will resonate with your story, your participation in the ups and downs of the land, your awareness of shifting layers of fog, light and darkness within the space we all share.
