Artist Statement

The meaning of “landscape” as it relates to painting has morphed in recent years from what might seem on the surface to be an archaic subject for artists into something much more vital and alive in the 21st century. Our relationship to the natural world is inexorably changing before our eyes. Where, in the not-so-distant past we may have had the perception of ourselves as somehow existing “outside” of nature, we now finally realize that we are now at the mercy of potentially catastrophic changes in the climate. With the recent threat of global pandemic, we may be becoming much more conscious of how we interact with our environment. Art in general and painting particularly invites us to consider and grapple with the facts of life and death on our planet in new and profound ways. My recent work engages with our relatively new state of waking up to the climate crisis. I am making paintings and drawings that blend images of contrasting seasons, topographies and geographically impossible ecosystems into a singular artworks.
