These paintings of the landscape around Washington County, New York, were made in 2023. I am searching for the right balance between the way nature presents itself and the denatured industrial detritus we humans introduce to the scenes. Sometimes the right chord is struck and something beautiful emerges, even from the strangest arrangements of things.
