My exhibition of paintings focusing on the forests and rivers of Arizona, Colorado, and Washington, Nature's Passages, is now up at Carillon Point in Kirkland, WA. The exhibition runs through July 30, 2018, with the exhibit in five locations throughout Carillon Point.

 

The pieces in the current exhibition are about passages. Each painting depicts how the light passes across the landscape, creating a unique combination of lit and shadowed areas. Each tree, branch, or rock is like a sundial, which helps you to feel how the passage of light is coupled with the passage of time. You can read the time of day from shadow patterns. The passage of time also creates marks and changes to the landscape – a patch of grass blanched by the sun, aspen trees covered with gold by fall’s magic... There are also passages of physical materials, objects, and creatures through the landscape – the river running on our tree farm, a trail left by deer in the brush, a kaleidoscope of fallen leaves carried through the forest by a gust of wind ... I use trails, rivers, valleys, and light patterns that exist in nature, as well as my painting techniques and added effects, to direct your eye. I try to encourage you to make your own, personal passage through the landscape, which I once encountered and now present to you in this exhibit.

 

  

 

The exhibition is installed throughout Carillon Point in the following locations:

    •       In the elevator lobbies of buildings 2000, 3000, 4000, and 5000

    •       The Carillon Post Office

An excert from my artist statement:

 

My current work explores aspen groves. An aspen grove is made up of one or several clones. Within each clone, all trees are genetically identical and share the same root system. They have the same general structure and the same leaf and bark characteristics. But time and the elements have left unique, individual marks on each tree. Light and shadow also touch each tree in a different way. I am drawn to capturing these individual differences while still depicting the aspen grove as a cohesive colony, as a brotherhood.

Aspens are a key element in my work. Their beauty is mesmerizing. But they are also an amazing organism - each grove a single, massive organism. Mesmerizing indeed! And like many things, aspens are under environmental pressure.

 

In honor of Earth Day and Arbor Day, I am donating 15% of the sale proceeds on a selection of my aspen paintings to Western Aspen Alliance (through April 29).

Western Aspen Alliance is a joint venture between Utah State University’s College of Natural Resources, USDI Bureau of Land Management, and the USDA Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station and National Forest Systems, whose purpose is to facilitate and coordinate research issues related to quaking aspen (Populus tremuloides) communities of the west.
