The paintings are a still or fixed form derived from the same processes and concepts found in the Evaporation Pools. By presenting these processes in a vertical format, several possibilities in perspective exist simultaneously. The “Alluvial Interior” pieces lean more toward abstract meditations on fluid processes- inferring both an internal and external, micro and macro dimensionality. Works such as “Moor” or “Wetlands” come to a similar play of interior/exterior, but by means that are more overtly landscape.
At least three planes are evident within the shifting vanishing points of the paintings. One can often view in the same piece great spatial depths that recede into a horizon of vast proportions, yet quite suddenly, the image presents as a view to a landmass from above. Thirdly, a sense of microscopic dimension also comes into play as the image likens to an internal place, such as that found in vascular systems or structures, whether plant or human.
