This image is of a patch of ground on the banks of the Colorado River in Needles, California. The metallic paint changes dynamically in the light. See other photos. From the Series "Trash Paintings" Trash Paintings document various “outcroppings” of discarded man-made things lying on the ground, scenes that can be found almost anywhere on earth, but most often get overlooked, ignored or edited out of the landscape. The painting is titled with the exact geo-coordinates where the original photo was made and is searchable on any mapping software to surprising accuracy. I take a photo of the ground looking straight down. The photo is color separated, burned onto silkscreens, then screen printed by hand with many layers of acrylic and metallic paint. This intensive process reconstitutes a kind of abstracted ghost of the image. Occasionally small editions can be made but generally each painting is unique.

My work is a form of Archeology. It’s about the decomposition of industrial materials, the scars and cracks in surfaces and the way in which synthetic objects like polyester clothes, cardboard and concrete find their way back into earth. If we accept the notion that all matter is to some degree “alive”, then I document what life is like for things we fabricate and leave on the ground, for pavement and plastic scattered all over the landscape. Beneath the politics of materialism, what sort of tectonic dialog is happening between these strange, machine-made things and the soil they return to? Are there other narratives embossed in the ground that I can decipher?
