Portfolio > Migration and Climate Change

Lately I am confronted daily with the images of migration and it’s causes, and I paint in response.

These abstract paintings result from aa meditation on migration and the forces that move populations away from their homelands: Escaping war, oppression, poverty, famine and the effects of climate change, seeking peace, security, safety, freedom.

In this meditation on migration, the tally marks represent to me individuals or groups, populations. The squares that hold those marks imply communities... those bound together by blood, religion, nationality, even refugee status.... The squares group together or skirt the edge of the unknown, or break off on their own.
