Law of Nature
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.
These artworks begin from singular glimpses of nature’s inexhaustible energy. I expand these glimpses with a series of painted improvisations using color and form. Layered hues and shifting images dissolve the thin veil of expectations and time. There is a hauntingly familiar recognition of unseen realities. Images of striking beauty are laced with aching replies to devastation, some leaning into chaotic rage and others into regenerative harmonies.
