In Place is a series of 100 watercolors painted in response to the land, its history, and our movement through it. I gathered rocks and soils at places that are mostly familiar to me, or are sites of significant events in Chattanooga’s history, or both; where my current understanding of the place is incomplete and different from others who have walked there before (or who presently walk there). I run, walk, sit, listen, and then paint at each site. Like an early alphabet or collection of maps, these paintings are tracing a language of engagement with the land.
