Painted from my own photographs, each piece in this series depicts places I have lived in or traveled to that hold special significance to me: places of wonder, places that feel like home, sacred spaces, wild landscapes. Together, these fifty paintings become an emotional and spiritual map. Each work juxtaposes different places together and connects these experiences outside of time. The result acts as a “landmark,” a navigational tool to help me understand where I’ve come from, how to orient myself in the present, and what directions in which to move forward.
Created for the 50/50 Show at the Sanchez Art Center in Pacifica, CA.
