Landscape serves as witness to the passage of time and the cycle of life, its disturbing beauty often the result of natural or manmade events—drought, fire, flood. I want my work to convey a sense of the complexity of landscape and our physical relationship to it, illuminated at a particular time of day and particular time of year in a particular place. Rather than offering a generic impression, I create intricate moments on a micro scale. I hope to reward the viewer’s close scrutiny with a more intimate awareness of landscape, a reminder that time passes quickly and we should not rush through our lives unaware of its cycles of destruction and renewal.
