Art Description

Painting: Oil, Acrylic on Iron, Canvas, Other.

This painting was inspired by my connection to the landscape of the rural midwest and my desire to interpret that landscape through a personal lens.

Topsoil and iron filings have been mixed with the paint giving the paint greater presence on the canvas. These additions to the painting's surface can be thought of as a part of my process suggesting another level of content, or as an aesthetic device creating texture to be appreciated on a purely visual level.

The artist’s hand is strongly present in this very subjective view of the South Dakota landscape.The ellipses are almost perfect very nearly mechanical in their production, the imperfections however, reveal the hand of the artist/creator indicating the possibility of a bridge from a place we all know and recognize to an unknown country beyond the horizon.

On completing "Dakota Landscape" I was particularly pleased with the subtlety of the color transitions and the contrast of pastel rose and yellow colors accompanying the aggressive application of oil paint.
