Moving Landscape

I think of the Moving Landscape series as microscopic views situated within the broad generalized statements of the temperature paintings, "Local Calendar" and "365 Glazes".  They represent a split-millisecond of barely percieved experience slowed and stretched.  These are painted from photographs taken out of a moving car window or while running.  There’s an interesting paradox in using painting to explore notions of time and movement - painting  lacks the obvious directionality of film or a piece of text but is rather steeped in time, the beginning, middle and end contracted into a sort of punctuation mark that the viewer enters backwards into.
