Artist Statement

Through a reductive and additive process, with materials that embody geometric forms and organic surfaces, my work explores the tangible reality in relation to our temporal existence through a lens of scientific curiosity. I aim to uncover the material strength, depth and vulnerability of our natural environment on a microscopic and macroscopic scale.

While geometry represents functionality and trust, the inevitable nature of all organic matter is entropy. As the human body grows, unites in reproduction, experiences trauma, attempts recovery and ultimately perishes; so does the land on which we live. By incorporating layers of literature buried beneath the surface, the visual vocabulary may be translated as memories, lessons, and discovery of our inherent connection to the natural world.
