My current work has its roots in observational landscape painting. I was always most interested in figuring out how to paint space, rather than in depicting a location. As my desire to create a feeling of dense atmosphere in the paintings grew, my work became increasingly abstract.
The paintings I am making now combine landscape and geometry. I see these as two ways of navigating both art-making and life. Geometry, which is connected to drawing for me, references the ordered, the rational, and the intellectual. Landscape, which informs and inspires the color in my paintings, speaks to the random, the emotional, and the intuitive. The richness comes from bringing the two together.
