"This painting is first and foremost an ode to Milton Avery. As I was developing my style in undergrad, I found myself leaning on abstraction as a crutch and avoiding figuration altogether. I was not painting figuratively for fear that my ideas would not translate on the canvas the way I intended. Milton Avery’s 1940s-1950s landscape paintings were incredibly influential in my willingness to bridge the gap between abstraction and figuration. "
