Artists create certain landscapes that they, in a sense, walk through themselves. For viewers to follow on these journeys without straying, they must look for signposts at the intersections of life and art.

Sometimes those signposts point to the artist’s own character or psyche, sometimes to a life’s experience or system of beliefs, sometimes to a highly individual vision of the world. Or they can point to the artist’s search for a newly blazed stylistic pathway.

Whatever the signposts indicate, viewers soon learn that journeys through an artist’s personal landscape are as much inward as outward bound.
