In this series, landscapes are framed in triptych, windows into an ideal, rural perfection. These scenes were painted plein-air, into the abstracted, fluid grounds. Each section of the triptych is a golden rectangle, carefully measured to reflect the golden ratio: a proportion found throughout nature and often used in art and architecture to achieve a ‘perfect composition’. These works are a reflection how we view the world around us, composing it and containing it within fabricated borders, reminding the viewer that despite our ordering, nature remains a fluid entity and cannot always be made to obey our rules.
