Artist's Statement-- There have been moments in my life, when I have felt completely connected to something larger, part of a unified whole that exists somewhere beyond the immediate appearance of everyday reality. As a young child, I experienced this sense of connectedness for hours at a time while leisurely exploring my rural surroundings. But, as I have grown older and busier this feeling of unity eludes me, beyond my memory, like a name I can’t quite remember. I am left with a sense of separation and a longing to recapture this feeling of wholeness that came so naturally in my youth. Through my painting I search to rediscover this unity between the specific elements of these spaces and the larger forms and forces of the world. The landscape is the sanctuary I have found that brings me the closest to reuniting myself with this experience of wholeness. In these silent meditative places, I listen for the echo of something I am certain I once heard clearly.Through the process of painting the landscape and contemplating the natural rhythms and phenomenon I witness, I seek to fill the void created by my lingering sense of separation. The motifs depicted in my paintings are metaphors for a way of “being” in the world, a way I have experienced metaphysically in these sacred spaces and that I have gained poetic insight into. This phenomenon has reinforced my intuition of the universe as a single significant whole. It is my hope to awaken this awareness in those that are receptive to it.
