Once an innocent conversation opener, the subject of weather now leads more often than not to speculation about unusual weather patterns, often of dramatic proportions and the dirty topic of “climate change”. The work for this project negotiates this conversation through observation, speculation and direct register of weather events. Within each painting, surfaces or incidents can be seen as part of a field or constellation of possibilities: you may find black frost, hail, fog or smoke as well as debris clouds of embers, dust, soot and pollen.
