Statement of Work

My paintings, drawings, and video constructions question classifications of what is considered natural or unnatural in our surroundings. My subject is often discovered along bodies of water and travel routes where forces of nature and human manipulation are accentuated. Industrial engineering and organic process commingle at these sites, speaking of humanity’s ongoing attempts to define, control or otherwise set aside a natural world that is both omnipresent and inextricably linked to us through our mutual efforts to encroach.

My work is an expression of our attempt to harness and manipulate nature. This struggle to control is at it's most beautiful when under threat and realized as temporary.
