Thoughts on the Reed Canyon Suite

I like to dance on the line between representation and abstraction, and the natural world is my best teacher. Walking the Canyon, observing seasonal changes expands my relationship with this place, as well as my vocabulary of color, line, light and form.

I enjoy close scrutiny nature’s random calligraphy in tangled nests of branches and thickets; the inner workings and structure of the landscape. Instead of finding calm by the ocean or in the desert, I feel most at home when encircled by tangled undergrowth, and the flickering light of tall trees. It provides the opportunity to meditate on branches and grasses making beautiful calligraphy, and I discover unexpected relationships of color and light.
