“My work provides a simplified, contemplative surface that allows viewers to notice specific qualities of the work, mainly texture and the subtle nuances in brushwork and tonality. Texture also plays an important role aesthetically in contradicting typical perceptions of clouds and sky. I want viewers to see past conventional ‘landscape painting’ and start to think about the psychological connotations of this contradiction; I want the viewer to start to question his or her own perceptions.”
