Thomas Cole (founder, artist) of the Hudson River School of painting ~ worked from written notes to himself on color and impressions of sites, working from the “veil of memory”. I have always worked the landscapes the same way. This process allows for evocation rather than transcription of places.
The small scale of the work is mostly about intimacy. I relate that to reading and looking at images in books. That experience is a personal one, an intimate one. Viewing work on the small scale is akin to that. Up close, the world around you dissolves… peripheral vision becomes lessened…. and eventually it is only the viewer and the work.
Works are available on the STORE page.
