Painting: Oil, Fiber on Canvas, Wood.
An interpretation of severe weather events on the local landscape, Remnants of the Land is a visual statement of the changing character of our woodland eco-system. Through the use of form and line distilled from observations of local woodlands, streams and rivers, new abstracted forms are conceptualized and expressed. Giving the viewer an opportunity to reexamine local natural environments, the work attempts to bring to light the effects of changes in climate. A witness to such events as a forest turned up-side-down by the extreme winds from summer storms and the effects of drought followed by flooding that cause detrimental soil run-off, new dynamic movements are revealed, distilled and conceptually organized through composition and color. The combination of line, form and impressions are unified revealing an energetic experience of interconnection and symbiotic relationships found in nature.
