I have been working over the past few months on a series with a focus on integrating a woven tapestry over a landscape. My new works in this series are inspired by the inner peacefulness and beauty of the land in relation to an outer layering of forces that transform the land. Each painting begins as a realistic landscape such as the light reflecting on water, the shifting of colors of the different seasons, the sunsets bouncing off the water, or the shifting colors of the forest from one season to the next. After the landscape is completed, I cover it with a veil, a woven tapestry in order to protect it. The gauze over each landscape represent many individual strands, all woven into a warp and a weft, and it is this interlocking of threads, the under and over linking one line to the next that holds it together. The woven fabric transforms and protects the land.
