Description

"This was one of the first successful paintings from my current series that intertwines pattern with image, although the first attempts at this type of work began in 2006 (nine years earlier). Aspen and Pine includes an image of trees from the mountains above Santa Fe with an Amish quilt pattern. I love how the deep representational space of the landscape begins to flatten with the introduction of the abstract pattern. My goal was to make a painting that could be read both representationally and abstractly, creating a bit of a visual puzzle and allowing the viewer's perception to toggle back and forth between image and pattern."
