CROP PAINTINGS

The Crop Series was concieved as a continued investigation into how the natural world has been traditionally depicted.  These paintings, which were made between 2004 and 2008, were individually shaped from birch panels with a router prior to the painting process.  By removing the traditional rectilinear orientation, and specifically the four corners that define it, I wanted to disrupt the casual viewers passive gaze and create a more dynamic visual experience.
