Southwest Hills is part of a series of Abstract Landscapes I have worked on. I’m trying to visualize the feeling of a place out of discarded materials, then asking the viewer to explore the work, the materials, their sense of place and what "place" means. Infused in all my work is a conversation about the materials that we consume and discard everyday.
