About the Work
This painting was constructed using a number of attached surfaces including canvas, muslin and plastic debris. Attaching strips of canvas allows me to recycle used material into new work along with other materials on the studio floor that would otherwise be thrown away. Creating surfaces out of used material and integrating these into various landscapes has been the focus of the work for some time now. In this painting, the bold orange sun burns bright over a beach with rough, energetic waters filled with bits of plastic and debris. I am interested in creating a landscape that is both beautiful and somewhat ruined at the same time. It is at the intersection of these two ideas that I find inspiration for my work, the sublime yet broken landscape.
