I'm thrilled that my exhibition "Islands in the Stream" is opening this week at Sue Greenwood Fine Art in Laguna Beach, CA.
My work comes from thoughts about people and places; about permanence and impermanence; about notions of home and belonging. These thoughts are depicted in images that combine simple representations, layered abstractions, and plain-spoken materials.
I’m always fascinated by people’s relationship with the land and time - how the landscape becomes a record of people’s movements and stories. Especially the way that the things we regard as solid and permanent are actually temporary, in flux, and part of a continuum much larger than ourselves.
Much of my recent work ponders life's transitions, and features images of boats, houses, and travelers, reflecting on life’s journeys, arrivals, and moorings.
The show features fifteen paintings, mostly made in the last two years, and the gallery is currently open for socially responsible viewing. Also showing concurrently - work by the always fascinating Arizona artist John Randall Nelson.
