Air is heavy, enduring and permanent. Mass is fleeting. Solitude is vibrant, vital, and optimistic. Logic is altered but we still regain our place in the world through memory. Memory is equilibrium.
My paintings are selective and ideals of the truth. They are reflections of my past, the days that I have drawn out in my mind as precious time. The landscape provides stillness and solitude, a moment to reconnect to a personal history within the world.
The majority of my paintings are depictions of heightened dramatic lightingdusk or dawn. I use both soft rendering and thick application of the paint to create an interchange of perspective. Areas that I consider transient are treated with more subtly and areas that show drama and strength are treated with physical build up on the surface. The exchange between light and shadow, permanent and fleeting are exaggerated to present a space that at once may deny a sense of reasoning yet connect with a sensual reality for the viewer.
