NATIONAL PARKS

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.
