The artist states: “Even as a student I noticed that, while I was looking at swirls and skeins of paint on a flat surface, I was experiencing something else, something visceral, of light and atmosphere and time of day. My goal as a landscape painter was formulated in that moment, and remains pretty much unchanged to this day: to make my viewer feel, rather than think about, my subject and the light falling on my subject.”
