This series is a narrative of a place losing the qualities that distinguish it from a space. The establishment of a sense of place is a psychological event that occurs when a person gains a connection to a physical location and moment through experience. This work explores the relationship between place and time in this process. I make this work to understand what happens to our understanding of a space as it changes.

The series Towers consists of shaped paintings in which I focus on the structure and color of man-made objects protruding from the landscape. Cut from dense fiberboard and then painted, the shapes are graphic and minimal. The colors are specific to the objects they describe. I use titles and accompanying text to orient the viewer.
