Reception: Dec 13, 7pm
Artist's Statement In my work I’m following the Utah tradition of landscape painting, however approaching it from a contemporary stance. I intend to bring landscape painting into the 21st century. With the growth of the technology and our digital age, many have lost touch with land and either disregard, or deny it completely. Through my paintings I intend to create a visual experience that will renew the viewers’ excitement in the land. To show them something they see everyday, in a new, innovative and captivating way. I utilize perspective, color, and a large scale, to create a visual space that the viewer can explore and become lost in, a deep space that they can enter with their eyes, and move around it. It is through this visual experience that I hope to reinvigorate their outlook on the land, and their appreciation for it.
