ABOUT THE PAINTINGS

My landscape paintings are about people. In them, I document people's similarities and peculiarities by focusing-in on their homes, modes of transportation, and the streets they frequent. In an effort to elevate the mundane, the buildings are seen from the front, and in their quirky symmetry feel like little shrines. I collage together imagery from multiple sources to create the composition, and heighten or subdue the colors to make the paintings feel like a memory. The source photos are taken while driving with the camera rested on my shoulder, and give the sense of a glimpse caught while looking out of a car window. I've painted them, and continue to paint them, from places all over the world.
