Terrestrial is defined as of, on, or relating to the earth.
My painting practice is rooted in the quiet observation of the natural world. It is through the landscape - through terra - that I explore the boundaries between light, space, solid form, and memory.
Like layers of sediment, transparent watercolor is slowly built up to create areas of intricate detail. Isolated in empty space, landscape formations are decontextualized and re-imagined. No longer tethered, these ‘new’ forms allow for new observations and insights into the familiar.
