South Forty

South Forty

18″ x 22″ x 1 3/4″

Mixed media

South Forty is created using strips of collaged fabrics and string, then torched to create a prairie buffer with signs of a prescribed burn used to help renew plants and soil along the edge of the farm field.

This painting is framed in a modern, black, floater frame which has some breathing room around the edges between the painting and the inside of the frame. It is ready to install. Hardware included.

My experimental prairie and farmland art brings an awareness to land use and the regenerative techniques used to renew soil health. In my exploratory pieces, I challenge the viewer to take a closer look at nature used as art materials, romantic notions of rural landscape, land use and ownership, loss of natural ecosystems, agricultural economy, and ways to heal the soil.
