Description is revelation, it is not the thing described
Nor false facsimile, ... plainly visible
Yet not too closely the double of our lives
Intenser than any actual life could be (Wallace Stevens)
In these paintings the artist explores the singular moment, mood, and tone of the west coast in images of passage through landscapes and, as the artist puts it: "the industrial sublime."
