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.
As an artist, I am taken by the idea that the land is something that we can use to mark time against and that through an intuitive approach to observing, studying and documenting specific locations we can be witness to change.
My creative research involves the production of artists’ books, prints, drawings, videos, animations and installations that consider the ways in which our perception and experience of place is often mediated by time, change and memory. Specifically, I am interested in creating images that visualize the relationship between time, change, and consciousness through an in-depth exploration of place.
