The visual language of my work is formal, material and process based. I strive to set up a visual polarity of what is familiar and unfamiliar as a way to engage the viewer about time passing and the continuous state of change in nature both on a human and geologic timescale.
My intent is to create approachable works that have layers of visual data that can unfold in the present as well as over time. I look for ways to transform universal concepts from nature, technology and history into a formal geometric language of shape, color, pattern and form. In the ways I need art in my life, I want to offer opportunities for people to momentarily step out of their routine, engage in the present moment and contemplate the physicality of the world.
