PHOTO BOOK
The large oil paintings that comprise the Dahl House series are portraits of actual houses I grew up in, in different states as indicated by the titles. While all the elements within the paintings are actual elements from each house, the homes are presented less as true-to-life renditions as much as simplified images intended to be platforms for the memories associated with these places – which literally housed the recollections of my childhood.
Dahl House - Minnesota, 40 x 58 inches, oil on canvas, 2004
