My work explores the experience of place. Initially I work from the personal outward, using my perspective as a lens to understanding a place. From there I apply traditional aesthetic discourses of landscape theory on this specific landscape, keeping in mind what this location has traditionally meant in American history and culture. From the mimetic European imagery of the “picturesque” to the uniquely American vistas of the “sublime,” I explore how these relate in form and metaphor to the American landscape of today.
