Taped was originally part of a solo exhibition titled “Maiming The West”. The exhibition was about westward expansion, from manifest destiny, the failures of reconstruction and the building of the interstate highway system. Originally part of a triptych, this particular piece focused on the last of those themes.
The larger themes I wish to explore in my work are present in this painting, themes of how land is used, how humans interact with the natural world and the impact our actions have on the planet and by extension ourselves.
