detail image


My work explores man's elemental interaction with his environment, particularly in the measured way he builds and inhabits shelter. Influenced by the forms and materials of primitive earth dwellings, my visual language is grounded in architecture and repetition. Like the building process, the paintings develop through stacking, weaving, and assembling simple forms. I make paint from pigments processed from the soils near my home, constructing a painted sanctuary with a sense of its origin and culture.
