New Depths series, 2017-2018
The series New Depths is presented as works that explore shifting geologies caused by global warming and thoughts of rising oceans. Images of the ghosts of radar dishes and skeletons of monitoring equipment are positioned in landscapes as symbols of human innovation, intervention, and cultural ruins. Recent paintings present concepts that consider new depths through composition. Layers of shapes and motifs, explore a visual disconnect attempting to cut through the ridged philosophies of linear perspective. The combining of representation, abstraction, and displaced objects allude to an altered way of seeing. Rich warm hues speak of the earth and the precious nature of the environment.
