In my work I seek to capture the poetic beauty of the landscape in its changing of light and time. During contemplative periods I have become more aware of these subtle changes of light both natural and man made. I try to capture it’s affects at different times of the day and year mixed with constant weather changes. I draw inspiration from my immediate environment when I soak in the quietness and splendor of the city at night or bask in the light of a new morning.
Contemporary figurative artist, Ben Aronson and the founder of Tonalism, James Abbott McNeill Whistler, are two local Massachusetts artists that have influenced my recent work. For this body of work I am particularly interested in how light and color describes the form and atmosphere of the landscape at night.
