Durrand Series

Underlying all of my work is the approach to the painting or drawing as an entity in the world with its own reality rather than a window on the world. While inspired primarily by the essence of our geological and geographical world, the work takes on its own life in an attempt to create a sense of a dimension that is under the surface, that we do not overtly see but rather sense intuitively. In this series the elements of the backcountry area of the Rocky Mountains are layered and intertwined in a narrative of environmental experience.
