Artist Statement

ABOUT THE ARTIST: CLICK ON FURTHER INFO BELOW ARTISTS STATEMENT, LEFT, FOR FULL INFO, My pictures come from direct contact with nature, rather than from imagination or preoccupation with graphic design, and scenes are depicted approximately as they are, with an economy of effort and scant technical virtuosity. I record the landscape of West-Central Alabama with a loose, expressionist drawing style, using Chinese ink-and-brush techniques developed through contact with sumi-e master Koho in New York in 1997 and study of the “Mustard Seed Garden Manual of Chinese Painting” ("The Tao of Painting," Bollingen Books, also available as an out-of-print paperback titled “The Way of Chinese Painting”). My tonal range is based on photography's Zone System, and I learned fine-art photographic printing in 1976 from George Tice at Parsons School of Design in New York. A master photographic printer chosen to print archival negatives in the Museum of Modern Art's collection, his best work is collected in "Urban Landscapes" (1976), which he designed himself while taking a course in book design at the same school. I am greatly influenced by American watercolorist Charles Burchfield and by the Barbizon painters of mid-19th-century France, especially Charles Daubigny and Theodore Rousseau. Another influence is the books of 1970s landscape photographers of the American West, Robert Adams ("Denver") and Lewis Baltz ("The New Industrial Parks near Irvine, California").
