Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement

My current work is rooted with the investigation of the dual reality of nature, what we can see and visually comprehend in the built world and the natural...but things are not what they seem. Landscape and botanical elements are the impetus for my work as they are the familiar reality we acknowledge. However, how does human contact within this often-misinterpreted genre begin to layer a new place for exploration? These are elements that define place for us, that evoke memory, comfort and have historically been part of a visual narrative. What lurks below the beauty? The work begins to take on the persona of botanic magic realism, forcing the exploration of personal relationships and evens in an alternative context. The exchange that takes place with visual images, memory and perceived past relationships converges within my work resulting in an ongoing visual narrative. The impulse to connect the beauty of nature with the uncomfortable moments is the foundation of this visual language and borrows references from many places, including traditional botanical illustration, anthropology and art history. These visual signifiers not only describe restriction but also describe a journey for self- acceptance. The journey referenced in my work is continual yet recalls memories of the past that are shared with the viewer.
