“Overburden”

“My paintings often reference the myriad ways that humans influence the natural world as well as the impact nature has on us – our culture and economy. I am interested in this interaction and the various attitudes and entitlements that accompany it.
The term ‘overburden’ embodies an entitlement philosophy with regard to ethical land usage; a sort of manifest destiny-tinged belief that man (contingent on race and class) should conquer nature, that man is above nature.” – Brian Mashburn
