These paintings grew from previous work which articulated aerial images of urban grids and windows of meditation.
The desert landscape has worked itself into the imagery. Stratified rocks near Joshua Tree National Park have replaced the urban settings. The newer work is based on the powerful forces that have built this landscape, its layers and layers created over vast periods of time by rock and sand and color...in places worn by desert flash floods and elsewhere jumbled by earthquake faults.
