strong horizon point is the starting point from which the
view is deconstructed, the fragments reassembled to compel
the viewer to experience the power and complexity of our
environment. Underlying an intrinsic reference to environment
is a conscious effort to utilize formal elements so each
painting is resonant on a visual level. The wilderness and
expanse of earth and sky are juxtaposed with the inclusion
of the "human presence" in the form of populated areas.
These areas are portrayed in the paintings as minute in
comparison to the natural environment as a deliberate reversal
of the urban attitude that our human presence is foremost.
