Art Description

Painting: Oil, Wood on Canvas, Wood.

In my Boundless series of oil paintings, I reference cloud masses, dramatic weather systems, and limitless geographical horizons inspired by time spent in Canada’s South Western prairies.
Using dense pigment thinly applied, form and scale contrast against a luminous ground, I am inspired by the ephemeral nature of light and the sustenance it provides in physical, psychic and symbolic terms. These oil paintings are expansive, stylized representations that are as much metaphors for spiritual longing as they are portraits of a magnificent geography.

The concept of “boundless” is compelling not least due to its relationship with that of the sublime and because it has been a universal concept since the beginning of conscious thinking; The word chaos has been used to describe this limitless space and draws its original twofold meaning from the ancient Greek word cha, “holding and releasing”.
As a connective thread, my work aims to convey the experience of being within infinite physical space that tethers and perhaps diminishes us, yet also exhilarates and fulfills us by igniting the imaginative leap.
