I made a trip in 2011 to see the Land art sites, Spiral Jetty, Sun Tunnels, Double Negative, Lightning Field and Marfa, Texas. These sites all had work that did not exist in a frame. As a painter, I had been making a series since 1998 called Paintings about Art. This series looked at art in a context, i.e. galleries, studios, storage, etc. The Land art work did not sit in a context the same way. I was at a loss as to how to represent this as it was an immersive experience that is enveloped by the world. It is impossible to say where the art starts and finishes. For me it continues. It also raises the question of, where is the art located? The sky and plants and animals are as implicated as the man made objects and the art (any art) stays in your head when you leave and continues working. How to paint or incorporate this into my work? This question has underscored all the work that I have done since. As I was working on the apartment paintings I became aware of relationships that I had not been able to make until then. I wanted to make an exhibition that was informed by this question.
