Wind Catcher

Back to NW Art Exhibit homepage

Image: 

In doing work such as "Wind Catcher" it is my intent to create a piece that possesses an inner life and power that makes it a part of the natural order of things. It is my hope that this piece engenders a sense of mystery and vitality in the viewer - a sense of work done with integrity possessing a content that functions on more than a surface level.

September – The Call

Images come into my mind complete. I think and feel in pictures. They are a blending of images from the physical eye, memory, and the heart and mind's eye. Thinking and feeling in pictures seems to have no opinion; it is neither passive or active. It is both symbol and the real experience. I am a self taught painter and value a diverse and common visual vocabulary. I paint in alkyd (oil) on canvas, sometimes incorporating collage.

Untitled

I have always painted.
What I paint is taken from the life I live.
I am affected by the environment that surrounds me.
And over time, as my environments have changed, my paintings have changed.
What I paint has to stand on its own.
I don't choose to run up against it by describing it.
I am very attached to each painting.
I am not prethoughtful but paint out of need.

These prints represent a visual narrative or storytale about our relationship to the river environment and our responsibility to protect it while we use and enjoy it. They symbolically present practical and philosophical experience of how we might act when we recreate in the native home of wild fish. Originally commissioned as part of a federal wild river pilot project for the Wind River Ranger District in Washington State, these images were intended to help streamside visitors appreciate the life cycle of the fish by being good stewards of the river.
