These recent oil paintings of the highway at dusk are an attempt to understand beauty in our time, and our relationship to the world around us. These scenes are overlooked places that are peripheral to our vision. I have used photographs as reference to focus on these ambiguous moments of movement. The light at the close of the day surprisingly changed the landscape below, transforming all the objects below. In our modern age it is hard to process all the information that we are receiving and these still images help me to contemplate the present. My hope is to make myself and others aware of subtleties of the land, and to be reminded of the wonder that we have become accustomed to.
