I work with landscapes as well as figures, though I keep both aesthetically separate. This separation is because the landscapes evoke a feeling of otherness and a presence that is not seen. I evoke feeling through the materiality of paint. If photography captures a moment and sculpture captures form, painting is a half way point between the two that lives on through time. I address how the anti-sublime and the sublime are perceived through painting. I also explore the co-existing symbiotic relationship between the environment and the anti-environment. The trees are an archive of time - as a tree grows so do the rings in its trunk. In the way an old solitary tree becomes an icon and a cluster of trees overwhelms our senses.
