Desert, acrylic, graphite & painted paper on panel, April 2020, 18 x 24 x 2 inches

I think Desert addresses your themes of Resilience, Creativity in the Time of Crisis, Hope & New Beginnings. It is part of a series I began in March to pay homage to the places where we find protection, solace, and refuge. 

Using the visual language of geometry, this painting reimagines the desert as a built environment; a hypothetical cathedral that suggests sanctuary is a place of co-creation between nature and humanity.
