These paintings are a evolution of all my work over the past decade or so. Focusing on the conflict between the natural and man made environments. Each piece was created with the focus of death and rebirth of our land. I was first interested in this idea when looking at old wheatherd walls, realizing the beauty in the stains and degradation. This imagery made me think of the lasting and not so lasting effect we have on the earth’s ethstetic and how nature is always ready to reclaim it’s ground.
Combining the elements of urban and natural environments lets me create landscape paintings that border on abstraction and realisim.
