My landscapes play with distance and degrees of familiarity. They are based on images from my commute from our rural home into our city, and from trips across the country to visit distant family. During these times of forced focus combined with the anxiety of the road, I am acutely aware of the sky and clouds that hang before me like a projection, unfathomable and untouchable. Their surreal beauty is juxtaposed with the practical guidelines and road signs. The distance between knowledge and comprehension, fact and possibility, invites pause. These paintings are encounters with doubt and wonder.
