I work from an aerial perspective to create abstracted landscapes. The addition of a tax assessor map as a final layer on my work allows the paintings to show aspects of ownership and land division. I am exploring expressive mark-making and gestural paint application with the juxtaposition of the human enforced division of the land. Reoccurring brushstrokes and marks work to create patterns and replicate the patterns of land within the composition. The inclusion of fabric and thread represent additional mediums that provide various textures evocative of the natural land. The combination of the painted land and created tactility of the yarn work bring me back to comforting idea of home. As my work deals with the land I am surrounded by, the land has been divided and property lines have been forced onto the natural land. It is no longer untouched nature much like after the paint application and threadwork on to the canvas, it itself has had things imposed onto it. It is within those boundaries that we make a home or care for the land since we own what it is within those borders. As the landscapes that surround me, I am a singular part of a whole environment, similar to separate pieces of land making the landscape a whole. The thread allows for smaller details within the larger work connecting back to how landscapes have many details in them that are unseen until investigated up close. Not all of my threadwork or fabric is obvious at first glance in my paintings, I prefer that the viewer approach the works and inspect them up close, as one would do when inspecting a piece of land property. Hopefully, discovering the intimate details that make not only the painting but the land its own individual.
