The American Landscape - Tatum Park
ARTIST'S STATEMENT for TATUM PARK
Tatum Park in Middletown, New Jersey, is a special place where I have spent a lifetime connecting with the Earth and sky…and It continues to be a place to reawaken, revitalize and renew. These pictures are a special insert in my American Landscape project; even though there are no architectural elements in these pictures Tatum is place where I made some of my first landscape pictures and I consider them quintessentially American. It has also been a place to for me to reflect and imagine, where I can transcend and see beyond everyday being. The place is foundational to my existence and provides me a place to actually see how the span of a human life relates to the eternal Universe because it has remained virtually unchanged from the time when I was a kid. And through that it relates to my exploration of Time, a common element threading through my fine art work.
