I seek to challenge our understanding of the relationship between human development and the natural world. By documenting the hidden impact we have on the land I bring awareness to things that we might not otherwise see. My artwork is both formalistically representational and occasionally abstract. As a geologist I see the many, overlapping layers of the landscape and how the land has been modified by a combination of processes, both natural and manmade. Draped on top of the land itself are mankind’s activities and structures that are collectively called “progress.” Within the subtle beauty of the landscape I like to tease out what man has done to that land and make the viewer wonder what is going on and why. It is yet unclear if all the competing land uses can co-exist and how these changing dynamics will impact the land(scape). The images are fundamentally aesthetic, but leave you questioning the subject matter, providing a springboard for discussion.
