These compositions have turned into landscapes over time, but they began as an exercise in balancing relationships that have formed and remained over a very long time. I do my best to remove myself from the process, to make work that is organic and feels as if time itself has eroded everything, leaving behind what is most resilient and important. The remnants are left in full view, exposed under a harsh light, where nothing hides. Everything is there, at peace with itself and everything around it.
