effects of excess crying on the landscape  is a series that explores imagined and emotive landscapes in dialogue with the existent political landscape. The gesture and lushness of the paintings correlate with a measure in time-- one can follow the drip of paint as held within its fall-- in this manner the paintings become bodily and enterable. The physicality of the paintings invites a concentrated meditation on the action inherent in the pieces, my time and emotion in the making--in the moment.
 
The series, effects of excess crying on the landscape, explores my unreal memories of land akin to the untouched and pristine;  there is something mournful about an idyllic landscape in a modern context.  Yet there remains within me an indoctrinated subconscious imbued with a history of landscape and the wilderness despite our current crisis.
 
The landscape is a universal subject-- of self, land and sky-- everyone has engaged in the horizon--an unattainable lived metaphor. The paintings are gestural poems; weeping landscapes. effects of excess crying on the landscape are landscapes of the soul.
