Painting the landscape allows me to retrieve memories from time spent in the natural environment, and then reinterpret and restructure these inspirations. My paintings portray nonexistent spaces; they represent a collection of influences and experiences. While painting I am looking at my own internal landscape, sourcing its connection to our shared human spirit. I seek the same outside myself as within, layering attention in pass after pass over each subject. This layering depicts and then reduces, simplifying and even erasing elements towards their essence. There is a willingness to obscure the original visual inspiration, though ultimately arriving at a balance between my outer and inner environment. I hope my paintings give us pause. A moment with both the world and our inner selves; to visit an artist’s journey of refined seeing into both.
