I observe in nature subtle shifts —the variations of color, the curve of the horizon, the meeting of water to earth to sky. The plains are embracing and full—lakes still and enticing. By reducing the subject
to its primary component the larger picture becomes clear. These reductive abstractions of nature are a compilation of my thoughts, philosophies and observations rather than a literal translation. I use
open fields, crops and lakes as a foundation for my ideas to build on. I am most attracted and intrigued by the understated beauty of agriculture. Like the American plains, my aesthetics lend to simple
forms in conjunction with an agitated surface. Repetition and illumination of these forms creates a dialect; a communication of parts—forms—colors. The most alluring component being color: an ephemeral presence in our daily lives.
