Artist Statement

This work explores the horizon line as a picture device and a psychological place. In the drawing, the horizon line is made up of multiple lines, which refers to the process of its own making and provides a rhythmic, syncopated space. It is a place where two things meet, not only land and sky, or water and sky, but also day meeting night in the form of a sunset. You ride off into it, the end of one thing and the beginning of another, an uncertain future. While we might think of the sunset as a comforting trope, I want to show the hovering, unstable moment produced at this juncture of past and present. Formally, the work is built through accretion, and I look to Seurat, Van Gogh, Mondrian, Donald Judd and the Bauhaus Weavers. For a bit of big sky romanticism, I go to Thomas Cole and the films of John Ford.
