Homeland

2012 - 2020

While walking, I often take photos. Moving through the world and pausing to look through the viewfinder is a way of engaging and awakening the eye, and of saying "Yes,This ". It can also be a way of de-objectifying, where what one looks at becomes not rock or tree, but composition, color and light. Sometimes the photos become the seeds for new artworks. As paintings, these mementos of engagement are transformed - becoming, with artist materials and gestures, objects that contain and depict their own new reality.  But, the initial "Yes " remains - a loving acknowledgement of the land that is home.
