Statement

These paintings are simplistic color field compositions that are aesthetically and conceptually based on the landscape paintings of Dwight Tryon, John Henry Twachtman and Charles Warren Eaton of the Tonalist movement. I am drawn to their contemplative, darker tones and the restraint they possess to allow bright orange and red sunsets to rip through their rich compositions. Their work that most interests me is when there is a lack of a human presence, creating a deeper sense of ownership of the landscape for the viewer. These are also homages to the Abstract Expressionist movement, painters Wayne Theibaud, Richard Diebenkorn and what Egon Schiele's landscapes.
