These drawings are from a 2015 Residency at the Platte Clove Preserve in the Catskill Mountains of NY, returning to landscape themes and doffing my cap to some British influences: Sutherland, Nash, Palmer, Turner & Constable. Platte Clove is an ominous ice age ravine and an arena for drama and visual contradictions: IMMEDIATE/ TIMELESS, LIQUID/ SOLID, HARD/ SOFT, WET/ DRY, LIGHT/ DARK, GROWING/ DECAYING, VAST/ TINY, PRETTY/ UGLY, THREATENING/ THREATENED.
