THE GREAT WALL : CORN

Yes, there are still farmers in Bucks County. As stewards of the land they remold and shift our visual landscape seasonally. I have followed the annual rhythm of planting and harvesting for years .To maximize their yield the modern farmer uses a GPS for row planning. The result is crop architecture; sweeping walls of corn rising alongside the roads and hedgerows. These massive, chunks, of living masonry have provided fertile material for plein aire study. The works on paper are from Summer and Autumn 2013 -14 ,they are mixed media on 22’x 30′ arches hot press paper.
