The traditional landscape had a foreground on the bottom and a sky above, the viewer looks upon the land like it is a stage. These woodscapes put the viewer in the middle of the woods. It is deliberately disorientating.

The work extrapolates from the old growth forest, using a range of colors and feelings not often associated with the woods. I paint outside and in my studio, from photographs and sketches. Memories of other woods arise. The paintings are explorations, I never know how they will end, sometimes it takes awhile.

The paintings are about the mysteries of nature, both in the forest they refer to, and in the paint, gesture, and light of which they were made. They investigate the nature of perception, especially in the relationship between photography and hand made representation.
