Artist Statement

My work posits that the Image is integral to a system that is optimized for resource extraction from the land as well as from human labor. With this in mind I ask, can the simple “nature” image be an example of Man’s alienation from the natural world and his own wild nature. When I began my latest works I decided that the most concise way to describe this idea was by a refusal to finish the paintings. Occasionally merging with my painting practice I have been building shelters- one of which doubles as a camera obscura.
