Exigent Pleasantry highlights a few of my latest paintings inspired by volatile weather. Hints of clouds, sky, rain, and bitter cold saturate the surfaces of canvas and linen. Weather is the ultimate topic in small talk, but what once was an effortless topic can now be a point of polarization and anxiety because of climate change. We chat about the weather as a safe subject, perhaps, but also because weather is important to us physically and psychologically.
