We are creatures capable of limitless compassion, but also horrific and unnecessary violence. We rarely take the time to observe what causes these things within ourselves, and prefer to blindly stumble on through these experiences, only to comment retrospectively, after we have performed at our worst. My work seeks to show us, through glimpses of expressions and body language amidst nature’s reclamation of our creations, that the struggle within ourselves and our struggle against nature are one in the same.
My Artist Statement, written December 2008.
Applies to all work created from 2004-2008.
Since March of 2009 however, my work has shifted a bit and is more focused on human nature. I am working on a new artist statement to accompany it.
