 My work reflects the experience of road trips throughout the American West: driving the long highway that stretches to the horizon and beyond, the expansive vistas, roadside meals, sudden storms, small towns with people leading different lives, the flash of a scene as it goes by, distant lights that slowly grow near and quickly disappear, the wide open quiet in the long light of dusk in a country that is never lonely but instead beautiful and full. My work is about the West as we see it now, not the idealized epic landscapes we see in museums but as it is in our time, with all its transcendent beauty, jarring intrusions, and apparent contradictions.
