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 intrigued 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. Through my studio practice, I ask how our perception and experience of place is mediated by time, change and memory and how these elements play out and unfold across different scales as we attempt to make sense of change. By subsuming emergent trends and placing them alongside traditional tools and techniques, I provide myself the space to cross traditional boundaries and utilize new and different effects in my work. The multiple, in its many forms, echos our varying perception and memories of time and space while congruently creating new experiences and again transforming our memories across time.
