The Return
2003
oil on canvas
72"x96"
Begun in 2003, I significantly reworked this large scale painting in the spring of 2012. While the rest of my recent body of work uses appropriated imagery to investigate apocalyptic themes, this painting explores my own response to the conflict between our civilization and our environment. It is based on my memories of Southern California freeways and the Pacific, my observations of my own body, and my habit of listening to news radio while painting.
