Region: MFA Annual
My recent body of work is about commitment. I set out to paint the sunset every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for a year, resulting in 150 oil paintings. My inventive capacities were challenged as I worked at the same location looking in the same direction each day. My durational project follows in the footsteps of contemporary artists such as Jennifer Bartlett and Marina Abramovic, likewise pushing the limits of mind and body. My Inness, J. M. W. Turner, and members of the Hudson River School. Like the work of these great painters, my canvases convey the light of the setting sun and its emotional impact on the landscape.
