The inclusion of the figure in the landscape can add a powerful element to a three dimensional statement. This is because the human form is capable, like nothing else, of depicting a range of human experience from fate, to authority and awkwardness, to self-deception, while at the same time displaying an underlying dignity. The language of figurative realism I, for the artist, the most effective way of portraying what it is to be human.
