Detail of Temporal (New Deal Fruit)
My work explores the relationship between architecture and landscape in Contemporary America. Years of traveling and photographing my surroundings have created a large bank of photos to work from and in many instances viewers are drawn to the sense of nostalgia created from the combination of the washed out image and flat shapes of color.
Another work in the Temporal series.
