Thank you so much for your review of my recent landscape work. Growing up in Kansas and now having recently returned I find myself fascinated with the sky. The cut in the land is a fence row with a path worn by ranchers checking their fence line, a quiet ride and long.

Curator’s Comments:

 

Over the Grove is one of several black and white landscapes that seem to capture mystical natural wonder along with the profane.   The large sweeping cloud occupying the top half of the picture plane appears to have been caught in a frozen moment of volatility, whereas the small defined cloud in its foreground is still and strangely unaffected. It’s as if the smaller clouds become personified witnesses to a larger pictorial movement. The dark row of the tree line further creates stability in the piece, but the points of the tree tops and branches all direct upwards, calling attention to the stunning event.  Sometimes the Sky is Enough has a similar furtive mystery despite the open expanse of its space. The tremendous contrast from the black top of the piece to the wispy pale grey is bordering spectacular, above a decidedly ordinary ground.  I’m unsure if the thin slit cut into the land is either a narrow footpath or aerial view of a longer road.  Either way the smallness of the space it occupies within the otherwise unadulterated landscape conjures a sensation of the insignificance of human effort.
