Remanifesting Destiny
As one of a growing body of artists in the current field of environmental art, I have devoted myself to the investigation of contemporary notions of land. Most recently I have been creating paintings based on the iconic visual language of the American Sublime landscape painters who traveled to the western United States and abroad. The imagery that I create addresses the role these artists played in the expansionism of Manifest Destiny by using their sublime visual structure to paint the artifacts of what their work helped bring about: the boom of industry, development and growth, and all its subsequent issues that we continue to see today.
