Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

I painted this work in the forests of Big Sur in California. After hiking and exploring the surrounding red woods, streams, waterfalls, and beaches I painted this piece as a connection to these experiences.

Slipping in and out of the familiar through abstract mark making, I draw parallels between nature and human nature within my paintings. My shapes coalesce into landscape and figure, eventually dissipating into abstract impressions. The brush stroke becomes a vortex for multiple forms or ideas. My hope is that viewers will encounter their inner realities by engaging the work's limbo state.

Within this innate reflection, I question the potential fears and inspirations, the knowns and unknowns the observers might meet in themselves. This interaction simulates the sublime that landscape painting aspires to. It offers the viewer a choice or perhaps a door to the unrevealed, and in that choice I hope a piece of the viewer’s inner-landscape manifests.
