“I’m interested in light, shadow, volumetric forms and how together they create a moment many of us take for granted.”

"Far and Wide is a continuation of the hours spent alone collecting, collating, and creating ideas depicting the real and imagined places I’ve been. Manneristic exaggerations of the vertical and horizontal come together with muted and saturated color mixed side by side on the canvas. 

 

Aerial, linear, atmospheric, and forced perspective are techniques used to heighten and accentuate the distinct characteristics of each landscape. 

 

Narrow inlets, wide prairies, and layered valleys are constructed to bring  color fields together, allowing the shadowy rich under painting to peek through.

 

Wide, loose brush strokes and instinctual decisions, alongside a willingness to allow each color laid down to possibly change the direction of the work has resulted in a group of landscapes that are expansive and expressive."
