David Mudrinich

My art stems from the observation of a specific geographic place. Often I produce works and studies on location. When working in the studio on larger pieces, I tend to reflect more on my recalled experience. My intent is not to proclaim any political stance or polarized environmental opinion. It is more the result of a chance witness, observing the encountered conditions between the earth and sky. This work can fluctuate between sweeping, peaceful vistas and vulnerable environments that are undergoing rapid alterations. It is that sense of place that I find important... that complex of natural rhythms and life cycles merging with the visual impact that human activity has left upon the land. Currently, most of my images are derived from investigations of the Ozark Plateau, the Arkansas River watershed and the Oklahoma prairie.
