Artist Statement

 

I paint strange places: rocky formations; striations, remnants, ruins, boulders, mounds, caves, domes, huts, and architectural spaces. These localities could be primordial; may be post-apocalyptic, and are as familiar as alien. Ideas of both destruction and resurrection play through a contemporary lens of vibrant color.  

 

Empty of people, filled instead with suggestion—it's an expansive vision with hallucinatory references to the distortion and elaboration of memory. In these pilgrimages I depict vantage points on a mountainous climb, plateaus and ravines, precipices and vast horizons. I speak to the power of landscape to hold suggestive meaning beyond mapping or describing, into exaltation.

 

Psychedelic and modern meld with ancient terrain to become timeless and placeless. The landscapes of my childhood in Africa co-habitate with Chinese landscapes, Roman mosaics, Italian frescoes, cave art, and science fiction.
