Farmlandia

There is a vast expanse of farmland to the south and west of what we call "Chicagoland"—the city and its surrounding suburbs, townships, and villages. This land, ground flat by glaciers, allows one to gaze for miles and miles just a few feet above the ground. People and homes are separated by great distances, both physical and emotional I have been investigating these farmscapes in the winter, with their crops gone, the soil bared, and with a ceiling of sullen cloud-drift above.

My work, whether staged tableaus or urban landscapes, embraces loneliness and isolation. These farmscapes are the latest extension of this overarching theme. The series is still somewhat new and evolving. At this point the works are presented in a large scale, cinematic aspect ratio, and framed without glass to give the viewer a more immediate and immersive experience.
