As I look at landscape I retain the forms, colors, and textures in my memory
as separate elements. On the canvas they combine in new ways, different
from how they appear in nature, but consciously brought together and
reconstituted to form a composition – a new place, a landscape-dream
environment that has its own logic and integrity. I set up a tension between
figuration and abstraction, between the familiar and the otherworldly, and
between memory and imagination. My intention is to draw the viewer into
an imagined world, at times enchanted or mysterious, even unsettling.
