In the Arms of an Angel

The grid paintings describe ‘no place,’ nothing, and yet they have a feeling of place with the ‘landscape’ orientation that can be read as having a horizon.  In the Inuktitut language the word ‘kitjaqnaaq’ refers to the feeling we have of connection to the world beyond us when standing before a glorious landscape, that “we are a part of something.”  These paintings are meditations on landscape.
