Mixed media on yupo paper | 2018 

The recent work deepens the exploration of our relationship to a changing and dissolving natural world. Places and scenes stamped indelibly in our recollection are gradually changed by development, erosion, and weather, resulting in two or three versions of a singular place.

The work draws on the juxtaposition of natural pigments, fluid inks, and a synthetic polypropylene surface. Similarly the markings in the paintings reflect both organic and decidedly man-made components. The repetition of symbols and shapes suggest natural elements and the relentless continuity of nature. Other markings, including intertwined bubbles and text-like passages reflect human impact on the environment.
