SHEILA LANHAM

The World View Series of paintings are based upon photo collages from vintage encyclopedias and prints of my own landscape photographs. They reflect a personal eco-symbolism through a totemic arrangement of landscape elements and other imagery. I rely heavily on color, light, and form to create a new composite sense of place and space. Within the art historical context of landscape painting, my work offers a new configuration: a salvaging, stacking-up, and accumulations, as we face a changing environment and find our place within it.
