"I am interested in the imprint of man on the landscape and the constantly changing fields of ground as impacted by the whims of man. I juxtapose elements of the abstracted landscape and the shapes of man made structures in an attempt to bring to our awareness, the beauty and grace of, for the most part, this random interplay.. I have always been fascinated with shadows and after nearly nine years, have finally developed a way to use these shadows to tell the story that intrigues me. I combine paint and photography, employing a photographic process whereby the shadow becomes the interjection of the contradictory element. Man-made versus organic. The final result is a limited edition pigment ink print on archival paper, which I hope challenges us to see the beauty in something as random and mundane as a piece of trash littering a field.
