'Figures in a Landscape'
This is a series of paintings of nude figures in a landscape, a schematic and loosely rendered grove, the classical setting for many mythological encounters.
The figures interact : they gesture, look, and engage in a dialogue that could be conspiratorial. There is a sense of something about to happen, that they are anticipating an event or planned enterprise, or are challenging each other. In some instances, the figures are paired with themselves, suggesting that this dialogue is internal and dreamlike.
