Artist's Statement

My work depicts transitionary American landscapes like office parks, highways and housing complexes where concrete, vinyl siding and landscape design are subsumed by invasive flora. These paintings reference canonical aspects of painting tempered by idiosyncratic forms. Comprised of three major elements: sculptural forms, abstractions and landscape, they draw attention to highly designed yet inconspicuous spaces to inform an overlooked environmental experience. I paint routes taken regularly on I-95 and draw from 18th century landscape painting, decorative tableware and abstraction.
