A Fecund Forest

September 7–18, 2022

Garage Studio Gallery, 1304 NE 63rd St

Seattle, WA

I’ve been painting a lot of trees and forests. But I’m not really painting trees or forests—I’m painting about what I think they teach us. I am inspired by my observations of the natural world and the moral lessons I find there—the emergence of life from decay, the dependence of individuals on communal support, the sheer will to live on despite injury and devastation. My paintings are on gampi paper that is very strong, but also thin and absorbent, so every stroke leaves a mark that can't be undone—much like the effect of our actions on the environment. I’m calling this show “A Fecund Forest” because there’s new life emerging from unexpected places.
