I see the natural world everywhere, even when I’m in the center of some of our greatest urban environments. In a series of cityscapes, I explore the presence of nature in our urban world. My intent is to show the urban landscape as part of the natural world. I do not desire to present the urban environment grandly as Americans typically like to show our cities, or conversely as places of decay. I want to show that they can even be secondary to nature. And if I show the human presence at all in my work, it is a small presence and like the city itself, humans are hidden by nature and texture.
