This series of drawings investigates the troubled relationship between humans and the physical landscape. I live close to the shore of the Hudson River, and in 2015 I completed a residency at Platte Clove Preserve amongst the peaks of the Catskill Mountains. Inspired by that residency I made these drawings to explore the journey of water from the mountains through ravines and forests down to the Hudson River. Visually there is a transition from the dark, gothic ravines to the cultivated and open landscape of the Hudson River valley, a stark contrast between wilderness and inhabited communities.
