Artist Statement

The horizontal line has been a consistent presence throughout my current work. For me it acts as a grounding element that not only holds and defines the picture plane, but also references my experience of time and place. It alludes to the vast space and geology of the western landscape where I live. There, time makes itself present in horizontal layers evidencing the past, both building up and wearing away in a continuous process. My many layers of translucent strata composed of pigmented wax, oil, paper and other media, are built up and worn away similarly in a compressed period of creative time.
