Joshua Tree Portraits

I’m always enamored by a discovery of personality in nature. In this series, I noticed that each Joshua Tree takes on a sense of individuality and carves out it’s own identity within the broader landscape. Some have a slight lean, others are slim and straight, many are a bit awkward and asymmetrical, but each stakes a claim to it’s own piece of the desert and proudly displays it’s unique design.

Infinity Series

The job of the artist is always to deepen the mystery. -Francis Bacon

This sense of mystery is at the heart of what I’m after in many of my landscape works. The Infinity Series is an ongoing collection of images characterized by a vast sense of space and time, conveyed through very simple compositions of open landscapes meeting open sky. I specifically choose non-iconic (though distinctly western) landscapes stripped to the bare elements of earth, sky, and their meeting point. These images are an exploration of that which is discoverable meeting that which is beyond my grasp.

Badlands

I’m attracted to badlands from a conceptual standpoint because they are paradoxically ancient - showing eons of time in their layers of sediment - yet aesthetically modern feeling in their simple, minimal, and ordered compositions. I think of them as nature’s nude: revealing, primal, beautiful.
