I discovered these “landscapes” in decaying boat hulls. This series, Erosion Landscapes, explores how we perceive landscapes, based on certain arrangements of shapes and colors. Just like natural terrain, these scenes formed through erosion and time, yielding fascinating organic shapes and textured, colorful layers. These works are macro photographs of tiny parts of boats, which I develop, as with any landscape, to convey my individual perception. For example, the Starry Night, to me, evokes the famous Van Gogh painting, while Snow-Capped Mountain evokes a Japanese painting (the “calligraphy” is simply where the hull scraped against a dock).
