paintings   >   Equivalents

These roughly 5×3-foot acrylic-on-paper paintings were made for a 2011 exhibition in Lake George, New York. While preparing for the show, I learned that Alfred Stieglitz’s family home was on Lake George, where he made his images of clouds, named Equivalents. They are generally considered the first intentionally abstract photographs. My paintings were inspired by Stieglitz’s evocative photos, using natural patterns and forms to suggest emotional or psychological states.
