DESCRIPTION OF PROJECT
The recent paintings are nightscapes that hint at impending (or subsiding) doom. The imagined landscapes are inspired by my memory of growing up in Florida–disparate scenes of controlled burns, coastal floods, and youthful exploits. Located somewhere between adventure and disaster, the paintings offer a glimpse into my on-going exploration of the tenuous relationship between the figure and its environment.
