Artist Statement

  To remain has to do with time and place. Something that remains continues to exist when other parts, other things, no longer do. I believe that objects and places have the ability to bridge past, present, and future by objectifying and embodying time and change.

My creative research involves the production of artists’ books, prints, drawings, videos, animations and installations that consider the ways in which our perceptions of time and change mediate our lived experiences. Specifically, I am interested in creating images that visualize the relationship between time, change, and consciousness.

Images often move between abstraction and representation so that narratives and associations to the real world are implied but left open-ended. In recent projects, these themes have been investigated through landscape imagery, with an emphasis being placed on capturing temporal change through allusions to the circuitry of ecological systems and the continual evolution of the natural environment. Through repeated visits to specific locals, I strive to document and preserve our experience of time and space within the landscape.
