Ends Sept. 22 at Living Arts –
From livingarts.org: Various approaches are used by artist and scientist to study forms and surfaces as they seek to explain and define our natural world. They both examine what exist tangibly in an attempt to add to our understanding and our experience of the universe. My interests are in technical and material experimentation, visual analysis and botanical and scientific observation of substructures and surfaces.
Through exploratory processes and investigations into the materials inherent physical qualities, rather than a predetermined composition or plan, I develop works that culminate from change and progression. My approach to the material is responsive to its innate properties. The development becomes the conceptual basis, the building and layering in creation reflects the growth of the natural forms that I am influenced by.
In the process of creating multiple pieces there is a convergent evolution in appearance. While each is distinct and unique many share similar traits through form, construction and surface qualities. These works mirror elements of existing organic life and combine synthetic and non-traditional materials to create a tension between the definable and the indefinable.
