Statement

Along with many other animals, we humans use architecture as a response to our environment.  It enhances and enriches our daily experience and chances of survival.  This work, from my recent series of paintings, Thin Walls, continues my ongoing interest in how we relate to the natural world through the use of our homes, buildings, cities, etc.

I’ve chosen single-family homes as a symbol of all architecture.  As with any animal that employs architecture, a lot about the occupant’s life and behavior can be understood by studying it’s home/nest/lair. 

In my art practice, I begin with rough sketches, thumbnail drawings and studies.  I scan these and add found digital images.  This collage style of working continues to be apparent in the final work.   I think the process of building the images in the computer and on panel mirrors the sequence of actions used in the actual physical construction of a structure in the landscape.
