"Consolation" | 48" x 72" | Oil on canvas | 2013 | The landscape continues to function as a metaphor to make sense of how vast our relationship is to it in the literal sense, at the same time also presenting an image of our constructed relationships between ourselves internally and socially. In my piece Consolation, the landscape serves as a stage. On this stage, the relationships between how one’s leisure defines oneself and a culture are displayed while maintaining a symbol for our changing culture in the flux of facing “distraction.” How we choose to engage with this interaction will define our next landscape and how we search to find meaning in it.
