My practice right now builds on philosophy’s view of objects as places of discovery about how we perceive reality. Current paintings and mixed media pieces play on object-oriented programming. which (0) models the real world by defining objects, then (1) makes the objects interact to create a response.
You, the viewer, are invited to run the “program”. Approach each canvas as analog browser window, decide if the interaction of functional and natural objects in each landscape model the “real” world.
The first iteration of Objects in the Landscape opened December 29, 2022 at The Art Station in Fernie, BC. As the show wrapped up, I had two new pieces started.
The ongoing work builds on my investigation into the ways we’ve trained ourselves to ignore functional, utilitarian objects. Look past them, magnify whatever natural beauty we can find beyond, above or around. It asks the question: What is really there?
