Statement from the artist
The early works in this exhibit were about landscape, perhaps because of the material and format. Some suggested the early work came from the ocean, but I had not been to the ocean at that time. I knew the mountains, mountain lakes, rivers, plains and desert. The earth out west is rich in fossils and sediment —all of this had an impact on any imagery I was making.
The works in the show for HACC were created with the fields in mind, tilling, planting, growing and harvesting, all stemming from previous works and making reference to a struggling, yet blessed humanity. The mark-making is very direct on some and more cerebral on others —the work evolved from the raw to the more formal. The material makes suggestions —mark-making —I am here.
