Nature, various geographies and cultivated landscapes engage my senses, my mind, my spirit. These varied and accumulated encounters over a lifetime continue to transform me, describing journey, creating narrative. In my visual reflections, I enjoy the juxtaposition of varying scales, often considering the grand and the minute simultaneously. Likewise, naming the moment calls to mind the timeless.
Through printmaking and mixed media artworks, I try to record my individual experiences, real or imaginary. I often work in a series, striving to compose a visual poem or a choreography. While documenting the personal, I also hope to make connection with a larger human understanding and contribute to our greater shared experience.
The images shown here are part of a Shadow Suite series I created in the fall of 2021.
I am fascinated by the transience and specificity of shadows. Shadows (in nature) are, for me, a form of kinetic art. Originally inspired by my own photographs of garden shadows, the source images have been transformed to recollect the passing of time and light during a day’s cycle. Inquiries welcome!
