These paintings were done in the studio from my own photos. I document my walks with my iphone camera.
Place is important to me. It is where I have been and who I am.
My body is the frontier between what I see and what I experience. Just as my mind filters and interprets my experience, so the camera filters and interprets what I see. The photos are an intervention. When I paint from the photo, I reinvent and reinterpret what I have experienced, what I was feeling, what I have seen.
As I work and re-work the image it is re-embodied, and the meaning of the experience is both exposed and buried in the layers of paint.
I often juxtapose the built environment against the natural, wild environment. Tension is heightened with the composition contained and restrained within the edges and shape of the canvas.
This dichotomy is also played out with the struggle between the image and the painting of it.
Painting is a slow, singular and physical medium.
The painting becomes a fossil of the experience, a relic.
