The Periphery Project is an exercise in walking, seeing, and painting. Starting in February 2015, I’ve been walking portions of the San Francisco Bay Trail, photographing along the way, and posting the photos online (Instagram). The perimeter of the SF bay is a charged outline of a place, of an object at the geographical center of our lives here in the Bay Area, the bay itself. It is where earth, water, and sky meet, where development meets conservation, where the evidence of the past is there if you look closely. By navigating the edge of the bay, and recording each walk with GPS,the walk itself becomes a kind of physical/spacial drawing. I am taking the visual influences from these walks into my studio, and developing a new series of works based on the shapes, colors, lines, and atmosphere of the bay perimeter.
