The National Park Series represent an 8 month long journey in 8 of America’s most evocative national parks. From the Great Smokey Mountains to Shenandoah, from the Grand Canyon to the Grand Tetons, from Yellowstone to Joshua Tree and lastly Utah’s own Canyonlands…each landscape expresses it’s own lyricism, simple lines and colors that only hint at form, in tribute to a visual Haiku. These expanses appear to move through time and space to their own natural rhythm. Each park set uses a 7 color pallet developed on-site, in plein air, over the course of 4 to 8 days working in each park. The series allows each element it’s own enlightenment, moment by moment, from sunrise to sunset.
