The paintings in this ongoing series deal with the traditional notion of the figure in the landscape. In the Northern European Romantic Tradition of painting, this is a prominent theme, reflecting a desire towards the emotional and spiritual escape nature offers in reaction to the rise of industry and, perhaps more presently- technology. These paintings seek out a relevance for the continuation of this traditional trope. They are a slowing down of experience and a response to a hyper-paced world.
