Abstract Earth

I flew with my son, a pilot, and was intrigued with how the world, when viewed from above, was at the same time familiar and abstract.   This led me to explore and discover the abstractness of the earth from an aerial perspective.  

 

The Salt Flats pieces were inspired by the colors and textures of the salt flats.  With it, I create the polished, translucent, areas of the colorful evaporation pools juxtaposed with areas where I employed my signature ‘drop’ technique to build an abstracted interpretation of the textural areas of the roads and accumulated salt.

The Abstract Earth pieces also explore the earth when viewed from an aerial perspective but leaving behind any resemblance to the natural landscape, the work becomes a composition of colors, shapes and textures.
