Painting - Oil On Linen
Oil on primed linen, 0.75 inch stretchers, 24 inches by 24 inches.
Keystone is one of several paintings that explore the idea of Ecological Order and highly networked systems. "Tree of Life" motifs and "woven" and layered paint textures are used to address the characteristics of natural ecologies, human-created networks, and the complexities of human interaction with the natural world.
"Keystone" refers to a keystone species in a natural ecology. It was inspired by a set of papers I'd read a few years ago on the role of large mammals, and other species near the top of the food chain, on regulating and structuring entire ecologies. This idea could conceivably be generalized to other areas of ecological order, but I'm not sure how that would work.
