The process of distancing myself, changing my perspective to one high above the chaos of the disturbed landscape enables me to paint abstractly but not lose my bearings all alone in space.

September 2019 - May 2021


As the painting evolves
I imagine a point of view
above the earth
distanced, detached
and observant.

I am an explorer: imagining floating over the land from a great enough distance. Aerial views of battered landscapes, degraded by human-caused disasters become, in pulling back from the chaos, a great beauty, which enables me to envision the absence of human intervention.
