Statement

My work investigates aspects of our contentious relationship with nature through depictions of environments such as flooded towns, neon rivers, campgrounds, logged forests, and detritus ensnared on tree branches. Visual deception of space infiltrate some works through distorted compositions and at times individual elements are repeated or mirrored in unnatural ways. Human-made objects such as tents, telephone wires, decrepit vehicles, fences, or ropes make subtle appearances and act as metaphors for interpersonal relationships and psychological states. Using surreal and at times psychedelic color palettes, the environments appear simultaneously celebratory and post-apocalyptic.
