My en­vi­ron­ment in­flu­ences my work. Patch­town is a re­sult of this ap­proach; I live in the coal re­gions of North­east Penn­syl­va­nia. Much ev­i­dence of that in­dus­try has be­come a per­ma­nent mark on the land­scape. Patch­town is an in­ter­pre­ta­tion of a com­pany town ex­ist­ing on a culm pile. Culm is the un­wanted ma­te­ri­als from the mines. By us­ing sim­ple houses of cast plas­ter (made by an artist friend as a state­ment about pros­per­ity), along with a piece of An­thracite sited atop a dark hill­side, with a typ­i­cal Fe­bru­ary cloudy sky, I am bring­ing past and present into crit­i­cal view.
