The black on black oil stick “shadow” paintings shift perspectives like shadows across the landscape that intuit the passage of time, while raising questions about our sense of foreground and background. The imagery indicates the natural world, yet it is also self-referential, building on shapes and patterns that evolve in the making of the work.
