Worlds Collide (1620-9) (2015)

5 Nov


Nature & industry are often at odds.  Industry makes demands of nature that can stress nature’s capacity to be resilient.  This piece reminds me to remember I have a part to play in caring for the earth.  I don’t view industry and progress as the enemy but it is my view that we can all do more to make earth care a priority.

    I think this one is one of my favorites. I like the organization of it – it “reads” as a set of items that are making a point in the way they are arranged, even if it’s not explicit exactly what they are. Your mind fills things in for yourself. I love that. Plus I just like the look of the whole composition.

      I love the idea that the painting “reads” in the way you describe here. I love hearing how this piece communicates and I hope holds that potential for every single viewer. You are uniquely open to a piece speaking in ways I’m not sure other viewers share. Thank you for your lovely and meaningful insights!

        I really enjoy your work and especially how you are letting us see how you evolve, without feeling self-conscious about it or over explaining, just letting us go along with you. Not everyone can do any of this! I look forward to seeing more.
