Artist Bio
"Art depends upon men dedicated to nature," declared the sixteenth-century English philosopher Francis Bacon. Painting, at its best, invokes our most honest and raw emotions about the natural world. It is a reminder of the natural world that we all yearn to experience and return to. The inspiration for my paintings is the intense experience of a place-its particular light, its particular space-at a unique moment in time. This is the case whether I'm standing along the wind-blown coastline, hiking near a still tidal inlet, or walking by a rippling mountain stream. Painting is my way of sharing what I have seen and experienced. Painting is my story. So, if while viewing my work others see nature in a new and vital way-seeing the natural world as a place in need of protection-then I have succeeded in some small manner. My art has no overt political agenda. To paraphrase the critic Robert Hughes, one of the projects of art is to reconcile us with the world through the ecstatic contemplation of pleasure in nature. I couldn't agree more." -Don Resnick
