Law of Nature 2021
Law of Nature presents a glimpse into the powerful and mysterious forces of nature over the confounding pursuit of its containment as commodity.
These works arrive from immersive explorations and efforts toward safeguarding open and free areas of land from development.
The titles are pairings of terms often found in legal processes and names of entities from the natural world.

The painting process builds a document of responsive actions, improvisations which are unpredictable, as each layering leads to the next. Emotive evidence is present within the infusion of information, color, texture and materials.
