Psychological Landscapes

(BFA Thesis)

2019

Do you see the human figures left isolated in the expansive and mysterious natural realm? The looming presence of their self-destructive qualities; their pollution. What feelings are evoked when you are in nature? Whether they are feelings of uneasiness, isolation, mystery, or curiosity.

My paintings dissect relationships between humans and nature. These landscapes are metaphorical representations of the psychological state or mindscapes. Intrigued by melancholic spaces that lies between events, I am interested in the disconnection of humans and their environment. Each is an exploration of perspective, human and nature relationships, portrayed in atmospheric landscapes/ These atmospheric spaces are here to heighten the viewer's sense of anticipation.
