A Matter of a Few Degrees Triptych 2019 24 x 36in (variable) Mixed Mediums on Panels

“Each painting is an evolving and expanding process, and as such is a means of negotiating and engaging with the world. Seeing and memory are elements of that means. These elements fit into the structure of a greater realm of inquiry – one that both explores and marvels at those capacities, perceptions, conditions and events that identify us as thinking and experiencing entities.” - Mark McKee
