Pine Needle Polka Dot; Digital Pigment Print; 17.5" x 14.25"
The lives of plants unfold around us, quietly persistent and often unnoted. Their movement is subtle and accumulates with time: moss spreads across our roofs; leaves pile up in our yards, and trees uproot our sidewalks. When we stop to observe these singular forms, their inherent evolutionary intelligence comes forward. In reimagining predicted behaviors and forming new landscapes from plant fragments, my work exists in a space between the natural world and human design.
I am a collector of imagery and of naturally occurring forms in nature. I often begin a project with a photographic idea or by collecting plant material that interests me on a visceral level. It is this archive that I draw from in creating new works and where I often find parallels that were otherwise invisible to me. My practice evolves out of observation, using variables of light, angle and form in a method of collage that reveals new relationships.
