I didn’t consciously become a landscape painter. But over time I’ve come to appreciate that random elements encountered in modern life have an intrinsic elegance. For example, rubble piled by the side of the highway, designs created by tumbled, quarried blocks of stone, or the beauty of a giant boulder, isolated by time and space. Ultimately, my paintings navigate the elusive snaking line between abstraction and figuration. It is the link connecting each painting to another.
