En plein air (breathing over the valley)
2017

Watercolour on paper
Dimensions variable

These paintings catalogue the rise and fall of green hues in the valley at various sunrises and sunsets. Both a record of my own primary mode of measure and a rebellion against this monotony, each line on the page represents a new breath; each brush stroke a moment longer in holding that breath. Fatigue sets in, perspective wavers, the landscape blurs and shimmers, one stroke bleeds into the next.
