In my work, I document the landscape around my home near the mountains at the edge of Los Angeles. I am particularly engaged with the observation of changes (both subtle and not so subtle) effected by climate, human intervention, and the passage of time. Some pieces record my observations of a scene at a particular moment; others seek to track the progress of my movement through the landscape at different points in time. The works express the distinction between memory and experience, as some are made from direct observation on site, and some are produced back in the studio, when the experience becomes just a memory. I am seeking to express not merely the reality of the landscape I see, but the emotional connection to the space in my imagination.
