My work is about the figure in landscape and about installation or conceptual art practices. I'm trying to think about space in painting as installation and the landscape as a gallery space. Objects, figures and references to art history are "installed" in these landscapes or spaces as a way to consider form, shape and color. Graffiti is the texture of urban spaces and appears in the paintings to remind viewers that human interaction with the landscape has occurred.
