This multi-media installation explores narratives surrounding Western culture and the ecological relationships of biotic and abiotic materiality. Manipulated sound, video, and recycled materials become signifiers of layered reflection.

Artist Statement:

My artwork concerns the complex structures inherent to humanity’s shared environment. I often look to concepts and imagery based on environmental response and biologic forms to feed my inspiration. My intent is to not directly illustrate or mimic certain forms and concepts but to use them as an important grounding shaping a particular frame for reference. Projects often take their shape through introspection, observational studies, and material investigation. Formal ideas are expanded by rendering sketches, sculptural maquettes, and photographic analogies. Responding to my environmental locality becomes footed within this process of exploration as I aim to challenge ecological narratives and many of the false dichotomies witnessed.
