Painting Statement

My work is about the changing landscape. We often think of the land in geologic terms where time is so immense and changing so slowly that it cannot possibly be witnessed in a human’s lifespan; where the slow grind of wind and water combine to erode mountains while others are being built up by the centimeter. But in more recent times, man has rapidly altered not only the land, but also the climate that affects it.

I have always felt that once you become aware of something, you see evidence of it everywhere. This is how I feel about the changing landscape and why I feel compelled to paint it. The constantly varying tidal zones are the perfect metaphor for this changing landscape, personifying both the impact of man and climate change and nature’s rejuvenation.

Nature has a duality of simultaneously being finite and infinite and will reinvent itself and endure, with or without man.
