When I was in art school, someone had placed 2 perfect circles on the window. At the time, I liked the idea that I was looking through layers - the translucent painted circles, the glass pane and the scene beyond - 3 layers. It has also evolved over the years, as I tend to be drawn to man-made markings left in nature. For example, tree’s that are marked with bright circles or patches to delineate trails. The idea that man has left his mark, which both guides, but at the same time is leaving a reminder of man’s presence on nature. So, now when I add the red circles, which have become a bit of a signature of mine, I am hovering within those 2 concepts: layers and my own marks imprinted on ’nature’.
