SWAY. SHIFT: RISING (VERSION 5.2) | TDP GALLERY
AUGUST 23 - SEPTEMBER 29, 2018
I create shifting, layered, abstract landscapes using transparent materials and projected lights to create contemplative, meditative spaces. In these map- like sculptural objects reminiscent of fantastical hybrid plant species I translate material and form into a visual language of color, transparency, translucency, and reflectivity giving material presence to intangible ideas.
My work is inspired by nature and natural processes such as energy flow and nutrient cycles, and is rooted in my personal experiences growing up by the ocean. For the past several years I have developed my work to echo patterned beauty and shaped cycles of plant evolution. My current work focuses on the underwater environment, exploring how issues of seaweed cultivation, ocean farming and food security can improve our lives.
