Painter James Lavadour

James Lavadour paints abstract landscapes. Following parallels with the properties of the natural world, earth and geology with that of paint and the layering or removal of paint, Lavadour's work reflects his deep relationship to the earth and landscape of eastern Oregon and at the same time his continuous curiosity with the painting process.
