My work maps time and weight in relation to landscape and the environment. I combine a variety of materials to create drawings, paintings, and sculptures that address cycles of life, decay, and reclamation. The work attempts to highlight and alter impressions of time and (im)permanence. I ask the viewer to consider the implications of human mark-making and erasure in relationship to nature, conservation, and (re)development. Nature is changed by human impact — it is now and forever, and never. My work is about the life and breath of the earth.
I work in an iterative process. The process is iterative. The process is punctuated by moments of clarity and big gaps of confusion. The process builds, breaks apart, and rebuilds something else. The process extends time and also compresses it. The process is about nanoseconds and light years. One moment stretches to a lifetime. Nature reveals the process. Human nature reveals the process, but humans don’t have a nature. Humans have an impact on nature. Nature is changed by impact. Nature is everlasting. Nature is now. Nature is forever. What am I getting at? Prana —breath. Nature, the breath of nature. Can nature get sick? Disease? What is dis-ease? An impression? A point of view? An awakening.
