2001-2005



These are the works in the abstract landscape series spanning the years 2005-2007 while in New Orleans. Most of these works were made after Hurricane Katrina. The imagery is pretty obviously water-based, flowing, pooling, dripping. The palette became softer, more monochromatic, and the handling of the paint more delicate.


In those ensuing years after the hurricane, I (along with most people along the Gulf Coast) worked to reconcile the overwhelming feelings we had about the events in the summer of 2005. The change in my work was an attempt to capture those chaotic feelings and the changed nature of our environment.
