“Looking within nature for solitary retreats that parallel the solitude of creating a painting; my work aspires to unfinished yet resolved abstracted natural forms. By laying down raw canvas on exposed boulders and rock I move pigment across the surface to record earth’s formations. These ‘Rock Rubbings’ become paintings. They represent natural realms that are in some way an interpretation of the cosmos we live and operate within, whether it signals the viewer of biology magnified or the celestial bodies situated within the universe.”
