These paintings are non-verbal thoughts of my environmental experiences from cities, mountains and deserts. The places I have lived influence my work. From the soaring skyscrapers in New York City to the expansive groves of aspen trees in the mountains of Colorado to the dynamic red rock cliffs in deserts of southern Utah. There is a aesthetically pleasing fractal pattern that unites these environmental locations as well as this body of work. The power of the repeating chaotic vertical patterns in nature share a similarity with controlled architecture elements of buildings reaching to the sky in cities. This series of paintings does two things simultaneously. First they draw on the infinite complex fractal patterns to make a visually stimulating painting. At the same time the various degrees of self-similarity are aesthetically pleasing, calming, and possess a stress reducing effect on the viewer.
