Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement

I create imaginary landscapes using collage with mystical, scientific, and ecological themes. The visual representation of the three-dimensional physical world on a flat plane is conjoined with a depiction of the metaphysical; I find common ground between these seemingly disparate realms. 

 

The images that I incorporate into collages may be part of political, scientific or geological narratives; just as each map can convey more than one story, my work also has more than one story to tell, describing simultaneously land, sky, water, and architecture and exploring how we, as humans, navigate both the natural and man-made worlds (between which the boundaries may be blurred).

 

 

Though my work is constructed with paper and adhesive in a traditional way, it plays with distortions between visual perspective and surface image. Technology allows me to duplicate and manipulate images to fit my ideas; at the same time, my work points up our overdependence on technology (sometimes in humorous ways).
