My current subject of interest for painterly explorations is New Mexico. Long discussions with the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum about photographing O’Keeffe’s sites from the air led to photographs used to inspire this body of work. An aerial view feels like a unique connection to the land or, more precisely, the shared aerial environment. My work incorporates contemporary art with aerial images. My paintings are on the border of representation and abstraction. Respectful toward the permanency and entropy of the land, these landscapes capture gestures of surfaces and spaces.
