Artist Statement
This series of work explores the horizon line as a picture device and also a psychological place. In the drawing the horizon line is made up of multiple lines; talking about itself and revealing how it is made. It is a place where two things meet; not only land and sky or water and sky, but day meeting night in the form of a sunset. You ride off into it--- the end of one thing and the beginning of another, uncertain future. While we might think of the sunset as a comforting trope, I am interested in the tension produced at this juncture of past and present. Formally, the thing is built through accretion, and I look to Seurat, Van Gogh, Cezanne, Donald Judd and the films of John Ford.
