Statement: “I generally do landscape paintings in oil; most done on hardboard panels that are painted in one session. These paintings are all about color, shapes and movement in the Sonoran Desert and are created from reference photos. What I find most intriguing is the ever-changing light on the American western landscape. My paintings attempt to interpret the shifting light on the shapes and planes. I have a natural tendency to distill these views of nature into more abstract forms while trying to respect a sense of real place. This struggle between abstract and accurate representation from within is a comfortable tension that keeps art interesting. Most importantly, I feel there is a certain muscularity of energy, a dynamic solitude, in nature that I try to capture in my paint strokes. Color and application of the medium reflecting this energy are the prioritizing factors in the end.”
