I see landscape as imagery that depicts engagement with nature. It filters through several relations, from the personal and spiritual to the social and political. As a world traveler, I forever compare space [gazing, passing, going] against place [staying, depth, time]. My travel is documented through these photographs -- but it is the act of traveling that informs my sculptures and paintings. Though the spectacle of the scape is often apparent in my travel photos, artistic representation of the land is not about the “view” but about the involvement it extracts -- with such things serving as the impetus for other work/s.
