FACADES
Through my observations of the natural world over the passage of time, I am inspired by the layering of light, pattern, texture and color. I am interested in the fragility of nature in a changing environment. I draw on my photographs of landscapes, both rural and urban, recording light, shadow and memory.
In the studio, I build each successive layer of pattern, texture, shape and color. Beginning with silkscreen printing, I enhance the image by drawing, painting, printing and experimental mark-making. Each layer magnifies, overlaps, obscures or otherwise enhances the layers that came before, resulting in synthesis of a larger world.
Reimagining what I have observed, I reference organic and man-made structures. The resulting images suggest narratives of unfolding life cycles: birth, growth, death and regeneration, producing a memoir of places in transitions.
