Smashed Landscapes


February 21 - March 28, 2015

"My current body of work consists of idealized panoramas invoking memories of pastoral vistas that collide with the depredated landscapes rampantly surrounding and occluding our 21st century perspectives. Structural and industrial precision contrasts with hallucinations of primitive oceans and mountains that override subdivisions and strip malls; concrete transitions and aerosol fumes emulate glassy waves and offshore winds. These paintings offer the viewer an illusionary, campestral escape from the drab tones and distressed state of our immediate urban environment."
