Homer Watson was above all a painter of rural landscapes, and was especially devoted to settings that he knew intimately. Landscapes were biographical manifestos and philosophical statements, an opportunity to explore nature’s inner life, power, and meaning, but also to probe the delicate relationship of respect that he believed human beings should establish with the natural world. Those convictions were at the core of all his work, even while the aesthetics that informed his art changed substantially over the course of his career.
