2010, Acrylic on canvas, 36"w x 60"h
As a person from Niagara Falls I can appreciate the complexity that nature offers to people and our society. I want the viewer to have a renewed perspective on the worldly beauty of Niagara Falls, have an appreciation of the complex points of view of Niagara Falls and to be able to enjoy the luscious color and brush strokes of my painting.
Writing this reflection brings up issues that face me in my practice; issues of human exploitation of nature for personal use and entertainment. Still we keep building and expanding, just thinking opportunistically of money and growth. We need to understand that if we want to continue to appreciate this complex, spectacular display of nature, society has to gain an appreciation and respect for nature.
