My paintings idealize the landscape. I am not interested in the picturesque. I am interested in the patterns of nature, of seasons, and of human intervention. The landscapes I paint are a result of how those patterns shape the world I live in. Dualities are inherent in these cycles: dark and light, chaos and order, organic and synthetic. These dualities provide balance in my work. They shift the pendulum of my view near and distant, detailed and blurred. My eyes are cameras with lenses both microscopic and wide-angled. I record the landscape observant of these opposites. I paint to measure the differences in the landscape. Each mark tells a different story of the same landscape. The landscape reveals another fiction I intend to capture.
