landscape, mixed-media


My work for the last few years has grown from wanting to create paintings that address where the landscape ends and where humanity begins. I blend acrylic paint, silkscreen prints and other materials together in compositions that address everything from how we gather resources to how we alter the earth. These works are both about how we have already impacted our surroundings as well as how we are continuing to affect where we live. People have been living on this planet and addressing the landscape in various ways for thousands of years now. I’m not making paintings about a post human landscape, but instead I’m making paintings about a human impacted landscape.
