Oil on Paper
"I see the landscape as a cultural identifier that stems from the collective experiences that we share in natural spaces. There is a psychological significance, a sense of home, that the places that have been, in one way or another, sacred to each of us live on in the form of memory. A phenomenon familiar to the poetry of abstraction – as details fade, something more essential begins to take form - a sort of holistic sense of total environment. The spiritual sort of impermanence and uncontrolled transformation you find in flowing water, or the weather."
