The central Utah desert offers constant reminders of the power of water and deep geologic time. The aftermath of a flash flood reveals a beautiful reordering of sediments according to size along its path. Surrounding cliffs display the history of a periodically advancing and receding interior seaway over the course of millions of years.
In my work, paint echoes geologic processes… deposition and erosion. Gravity plays as much a role as direct mark-making. I hope to find an aesthetic balance reflective of the continual, harmonious rearrangement of our environment.
