DESCRIPTION: Paintings, Mixed media on Panel

ARTIST STATEMENT: I choose the medium to best express my ideas. These paintings explore nature versus culture. Vertical stripes (culture) overlay a volatile materiality (nature) expressive of climate change and geology experienced by living on Cape Cod. Painted over an underpainting made of unconventional and intentionally reactive materials, a chemical reaction occurred. No conscious attempt to replicate the surface look of Nature was made. Textures are metaphors for change or transformation.
