Triangle: Carbon 421.26 | Warrior I: Carbon 421.26

24 x 24 in


Scenes of deep forests rendered in greens and blues, with lilac highlights, and a rusty red band across the lower half. This is not a specific forest, as I have taken hundreds of reference photos of such locations. I am drawn to the scale of the vertical lines of the trunks, with the foliage high overhead, and the trees going on seemingly to infinity as they get smaller and smaller. The branch forms are always chaotic from close up, even though the forest seems organized from a distance. Forests give us a similar inner calm to yoga. Would we be damaging the environment as we are if we spent more time in the forest, or in calm embrace of our inner life as yoga encourages?

The numbers in the titles and paintings are seasonally adjusted carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere, as measured by NOAA in the month when the reference photo was taken. These are part of the Carbon Dating series, my way of bearing witness to climate change, while still appreciating the beauty and joy of the natural world.

Artwork Type

What's the difference between "Reserve" and "Purchase"?

Reserve: Place artwork on hold for 7 days to arrange free digital mockups to visualize the artwork in your space, arrange a free consultation, arrange to view the work in person, or chat with us for any reason about the piece. (Learn more about these services).

This is complimentary and the best option if you are on the fence.

Purchase: Buy the artwork online. Additional shipping costs (if applicable) will be calculated at check-out. Please allow up to 7 business days for shipping.

Please note that we offer full refunds on artworks within 7 days of delivery, but delivery and return shipping costs are not refundable.

I love this piece, but can't quite afford it!

We offer some options which might hep with affordability:

  1. Rentals: artworks can be rented for 5% of the total cost, charged monthly, for a minimum of 2 months. Rental fees incurred can be applied against an eventual purchase, as long as the rental fees were for the same piece. This is a great, low-risk option to test the artwork out it in your space without paying the full cost up-front.
  2. Installments: similar to the rental program, we are open to arranging installment-based payments with zero interest fees. E.g., 25% of the artwork value charged monthly, over 4 months. This is arranged on a case-by-case basis.

To pursue either of the options above, please reserve the artwork.

How is authenticity guaranteed?

All artworks we sell are original works or limited edition prints. For the latter, the edition number and total number of editions will be specified in the description.

All pieces are signed by the artist.

An authenticity certificate with the artwork and purchase details will be provided once artworks are delivered and you have confirmed you are satisfied.

What does "Framed" mean?

The artist has already put the artwork in a frame, which is included in the dimensions and cost shown. An image of the artwork including the frame should be provided.

All frames are optional.
