The Land: Scene and Unseen
Speaking of Kurt Schwitters: “Artists generally gravitate toward things that are over looked, forgotten or rejected”.
Ed Ruscha, Art in America, Nov. 2011
Looking at the Landscape
The landscape I shoot is the landscape I live with, the landscape I see everyday. I work with the environment around me, the environment I live it on a daily basis. There is the obvious such as Grand Canyon, G.G. Bridge, any number of Yosemite sites but what about the everyday seemly featureless landscapes; The R.R. Tracks, The Thompson Seedless Grape Vineyard, A field of push out tree piles waiting to be burned. Are these not something to cherish, to value. Is this not something that is stimulation, beautiful?
