The Pacific Series, paintings capture of one of the greatest meetings of land and water

in the world. Powerful geologic forces of nature, raging seas, distorted rock formations, land slide deposits, quartz dikes, kelp and vein filled crevices converge at the Point Lobos State Natural Reserve, Carmel, California. The reserve is a natural draw to artist, hikers

and naturalist due to the constant changing environment and amazing display of mother natures power.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“The Pacific Series’ a set of oil paintings, differentiated in title only by numeral, are thickly

plastered and highly glossy, primarily in black, white, grays and the subtlest of browns. The surfaces

are purposefully pitted, taking on an organic feel, celebrating the loveliness of decay. In ‘#4,’

the surface resembles a lunar topographical map, complete with craters, valley and sea of tranquility.”
