Transient Horizons

Transient Horizons

The installation art piece Transient Horizons investigates time and geological change through abstract landscape painting.  Seven clear panels hang in a maze-like arrangement creating overlap of marks and planes inspired by horizon lines in Iceland.  Iceland’s young and active geological landscape, offers an opportunity for conceptual time travel.  As the viewer moves, seemingly so do the marks creating different views of the ethereal and transient landscape.  A dichotomy arises.  Just as time is a fixed construct that attempts to define a constantly changing process, so too are landscapes, both fixed and transient.  In this work and the current series, I’m interested in nature’s grand gestures and the earth itself as an artist, carving its own marks over the surface over millions of years.
