The paintings in this exhibition were made during the fall of 2019 through the spring of 2020. When I began working on these paintings, I was thinking of our relationship to nature, and our age of fragility. Nevertheless, this exhibition is taking place now, and the Covid19 pandemic has filled our minds. The work in this exhibition resonates with this moment of crisis, although by accident. It fits for good reason, because the pandemic has laid bare that we are intimately tied to nature – its beauty but also its threats. The overall theme in this selection of works is one of open questions about what we might call our “spiritual” relationship to nature and each other.
