This weekend (October 12-13, 2013) I am hosting an open studio here at Bourbon, Dogs and Art where all you noble folk are invited to drop by and enjoy a fall day in the woods wandering around looking at the Woodland Banners installation, hanging out in the yurt studio/gallery where you can enjoy indoor art of the kind that would look great on your walls at home and visit the Bourbon, Dogs and Art Outlet Store to get a head start on the masses interested in the new chicken and eggs throw pillows and indoor/outdoor placemats as the gift-giving season approaches. A nice rain early in the week will clear any dust and the forecast is perfect for doing all of the above.

For people who want to know more about my work here’s an artist statement:

By taking daily life as subject matter while commenting on the everyday aesthetic of middle class values, I investigate the dynamics of landscape, including the manipulation of its effects and the limits of spectacle based on our assumptions of what landscape means to us. Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is fabricated to conjure the realms of our imagination.

My conceptual artworks establish a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined by its conceiver. These works focus on concrete questions that determine our existence. By exploring the concept of landscape in a nostalgic way, I want to amplify the astonishment of the spectator by creating compositions or settings that generate tranquil poetic images that leave traces and balances on the edge of recognition and alienation.

I would like thank Jasper Rigole who has created the internet’s absolute best artist statement generator and who deserves significant credit for the previous profundity.
