Although my work often employs landscape as its subject, I’m primarily interested in the dynamic of space and how we experience it- through distance, depth, edge, etc. I’m fascinated by the process of creating spaces to use as jumping points for personal reflection and consideration. Spatial experience connects us personally to sensory response, history and memory. Space is fluid and temporal… never static. Our perceptions of stillness are dishonest…nature moves, marches. Movement is an integral aspect of experience. In this sense, space and time are linked, if not ghosts of one another. Our experience of space is always an experience of time. In my work, subject plays an important role, but I search for content in the space between subject and viewer…the dense space. For me, this area is where the space/time blend is visually loudest, where the story is.
