About the Series

2006-2007

These paintings depict images of crowds of people juxtaposed with subjects from nature. The landscapes in the paintings reference nearby environments, but the crowds are interpreted from photographs that I have been taking and collecting of people who gather for political protests, concerts, parades, religious ceremonies, tourist attractions, and sports events. Images from the natural environment are superimposed to create a new context that refers to ideas about how our society is increasingly alienated from nature. Irony and humor are vehicles as I see myself as a perpetrator, not simply as witness or judge.
