Travel Landscape Triptychs

     In the triptych presentation, I attempt to unify these paintings by introducing the doves to serve as the visual narration throughout. They are a symbol of care, devotion, purity, freedom, and peace. They are intimately aware of their environment, eliciting a promise of hope and salvation as they turn a blind eye to the foibles and downfalls of humanity. I am attempting to make sense of immigration and our avaricious entitlement to land takeover at the expense of displacement, be that of humans, flora, or fauna.

     Birds are the only species that inhabit air, water, and earth. Their populations and survival tell us how successful we are in preserving our planet. We have relatively a new order of land use that has grown exponentially in the past 150 years, one that is most hostile to all species, including our own.
