I am interested in the mechanism of vision, the data that comes from it, and how we use this data to shape our internal/external world. Painting primarily from life, En Plein Air, allows me to explore and record directly my relationship with the universe. This relationship is not shaped by the acquired visual data itself, but with the processing of said data. Educating the viewer on the processes with which we view, shape, and understand our world (Seeing vs. Looking) is the foundation on which these plein air paintings are constructed.
