My paintings are landscapes from liminal, everyday spaces, usually painted with oil on canvas or panel. These scenes are typical, but in them I find immense depth, presence, and beauty. I enjoy the quickness and washiness of paint, often letting it be itself on canvas rather than worrying too much about its representation. As I paint, I focus on the idea of being present in a world that is on the verge of collapse due to climate catastrophe and economic disaster. I wonder what it means to make art in the end times.
