TRAINS & TOWERS

​The below digital galleries show my “THE AGE OF STEAM‘ paintings recently on view in the Arts Festival Gallery as part of the 2019 Edmonds Arts Festival, as well as train & tower paintings from my 2017 show, “INSIDE OUT” at the BONFIRE Gallery in Seattle.

ARTIST STATEMENT:    The steam engine is the quintessential symbol of the Industrial Revolution, the fearsome and immensely powerful agent of change that linked coasts, devastated forests and buffalo herds, and even standardized time. The networks that railroads created were an earlier, physical version of today’s electronic internet – for better, or worse.  And yet, unlike the cyber world, the train has a dramatic and even theatrical physical presence with all of its force and moving parts in plain view. My paintings explore the two sides of this critical machine – its identity as a giant, mechanical sculpture which we cannot help but admire, and its capacity to forever alter the landscapes and people it encounters.
