“I came  to Nes, to experience a  remote portion of the landscape of Iceland. I was aware that the weather changes constantly and this effects the light and the atmosphere and with that an ongoing and changing perception of place.

Both light and place affect my process.  The works evolve and change as the days go, which is why being rooted in one place for a period of time is so important.   I use paint to record an experiential response to the given time.”
