Artist Statement

#wildcity explores perceptions of wild in an urban context. The painting process was designed to make a daily painting out of the studio a fun, productive and interesting experience. I sat down to paint in an unfamiliar public place, looking up a photo on Instagram using the hashtag #wildcity. The images that emerged were spontaneous, everyday perspectives of primarily amateur photographers. This series was an ongoing study that led to my larger scale point of view series, This Wild Road.
