World of Form
We try to capture experience with language. Often we refuse to look if the language of description fails us. The natural landscape gives us a nonverbal description—it draws attention to what is and away from language-based ideas. The world of form (nature) is real. Our consciousness is real. Both are indescribable. Starting with a carefully chosen perspective in the landscape, I use form and color to compose a personal vision of the living earth—animated from within just as we are.
Historically, landscape has had an important influence on culture. Today it is increasingly hidden behind a veil of words. In World of Form I try to open the veil and call attention to what exists. Each image can be a vehicle for quiet reflection.
