It is not transcription that this work is about, it is evocation. In all the various series, this is a fundamental truth.
Overall, these works are about the places which hold memories and stories, the places we inhabit, the places we visit, the places we imagine…. the landscape is the container and holds “evidence” of where lives that pass through this world…. whether we have “access” to actual stories or super-impose stories onto these…. and so every place bears the "patina" of time & memory. The surfaces of these paintings are a reflection and a metaphor for that.
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.
