Portfolio > Torn

My current work begins with observation of landscapes, particularly those marked by geological "deep time," human interventions into the landscape, and our interactions with the non-human world. In these paintings, portions of the picture plane seem to be torn away or excised. Flat passages of chromatic grays, blacks, and browns are revealed, interrupting the landscape and acting as barriers to prevent the viewer from fully entering or easily navigating the space. Often, the paintings speak of what is permitted and not permitted, and the damage that may accompany such decisions. Competing visual languages reflect our experience of the spaces we inhabit, our interactions with what is considered "wild," and the varying degrees to which our encounters with nature are mediated. Given the rift between the human and non-human world, how should we proceed and how might we live well within these disrupted spaces? Part meditation, part metaphor, part elegy, these landscapes explore the anxiety, despair, terror, and joy which characterize our shared precarity.
