During 2019 and 2020 I made drawings and paintings after revisiting a body of work (pastel drawings) made in 1995-2000 while traveling in Nova Scotia. In Nova Scotia, I had a disorienting experience of objects (bales of hay) scattered across an expansive ground set against a backdrop of sea and sky. Moved by the objects uncertainty and openness I became more interested in the spatial ambiguity rather than the landscape itself. I find myself once again fascinated by a space that fluctuates, that is not deep and not shallow. Working with space, light , darkness and volume , the bales dematerialzie and become spheres. The paintins are oil on canvas and the drawings are made on Rieves BFK paper.
