Keystone, oil and alkyd on stretched primed linen, 24 x 24 inches in a light wood colored float style frame (approx 26 x 26 including the frame).


The title “Keystone” refers to an idea from Ecological Science, the “Keystone species”.

The keystone of a bridge or work of masonry is an important stone that holds together the structure by helping balance various stresses and forces. The Keystone species in an Ecological system works in a similar manner, having a unique breadth and depth of impact in regulating the ecosystem.  Wolves are believed to be a keystone species.  Trees are also a keystone, even though they are plants and not animals.


“Keystone” is an abstracted tree in a style that could be called “Abstract Surrealism”.  Biological shapes and forms coalesce into a trunk and branches.  Abstract patterns and subtly variegated shading suggest leaves, while circular sponge-like patterns evoke the microstructures of the xylem and phloem of plants.
