A 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.
