THE SPECTACLE OF SCAPE

My fondness for Georgia O'Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz go way back to our mutual ties to the Oak Lawn estate in upstate NY. It also seems that the 3 of us had one more thing in common which is an interest in Precisionism, an art movement of the 1920s. Back then it was about the precise, sharp, geometrical forms in the modern American landscape. I’ve always been drawn to these same types of contemporary forms and shapes that I often see in my local farms and vineyards. And so in this painting I’ve created my updated, New-Precisionism, version of the American landscape.
