Alone on the Marsh

This body of work was made over the past year, in my island studio off the coast of Maine, during a pandemic accompanied by political and social unrest, and environmental catastrophe - a time of great fear and uncertainty for everyone, and personal loss and homesickness for me. During the ‘lockdown’, with the world engulfed in an atmosphere of tumult and suffering, I found myself questioning the relevance of landscape painting.

What is its meaning in this upturned world? Living in relative isolation, I realized this past year that I have always ‘sheltered in place’, making paintings with a deep respect for nature and taking comfort and solace in my connection to it - humbled by the impermanence of living things contrasted against the steadfastness of the mountains and rivers and the sea. These paintings are a deep expression of my reverence for the landscape and its healing powers, and an honoring and celebration of nature. And on reflection, this feels supremely important.
