Artist Statement

All of my work is centered around mankind’s relationship to nature; I consider nature to be a glorious and infinite incarnation of the soul of our world. From a child, I was educated in metaphysics and have thus always been drawn toward the essential principles of things, their fundamental nature, often qualitative and beyond mere physical form. Thus it seems appropriate to me that light, of the more ephemeral ‘materials’ an artist could use, is an active and predominant element both formally and conceptually in my practice. I employ light as photograph and projection or moving light, but also via transparency, reflection, and now also as atmospheric or environmental. I am currently most interested formally, in the use of light to bring my work to life and so elevate or enlighten the viewer’s contemplation to something revelatory and lovelier than mere form, to articulate the idea of the greatest symbol of transcendent life-giving ephemera, light as dawn of idea, as life-giving. I attempt to further articulate the essence of nature’s grandeur as greater than distinct forms by layering a distillation of natural forms via the concurrence of macro and micro patterning in the natural world, using photography, video and mirror to animate these patterns with light. My work is made from light and aims to bring light, to illuminate the deepest abstract and core considerations of our world - our relationship to the natural world, which gives form and meaning to everything we are and do.
