Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement

Using systematic and chance explorations of the landscape, light and language, I examine the wildness of attention and perception through video, drawing and painting. Gathering seconds of light, opening the camera to one yard of ground, pairing the breath with a view of the horizon, my work draws simple boundaries in time and space as a way to orient under the elusive, shifting conditions of everyday natural phenomena, individual concentration and the limits of mediating tools. Hovering between containment and release, focus and dissolution, attachment and sacrifice, I am investigating the everyday wilderness teetering on the threshold of perception.
