Since 2007, I’ve been exploring the dichotomies that emerge from landscapes encroached upon by urban development. I am reflecting on the conflicts that I’m surrounded by in my environment and the awareness of the pervasive presence and influence of humanity, showcasing the contradictions that we as a species bring upon this earth-prosperity, progress and destruction.
In such tribulations I also see the beauty and excitement of our creations. The movement and the speed is conveyed with angles and linear patterns. I am illustrating the inadvertent disrupting of the landscape, signs of an urban modernity and rhythmic beat that transforms our view.
A repeating theme is the contrasts between nature/architecture, past and future, through the layering of architectural elements and graphic treatment of sharp mediums over painted surfaces. The Horizon is broken by architectural structures that obstruct, contaminate or enhance depending on the viewer’s interpretation.
These works are also intended to be a metaphor for our social structures in which we depend on in our day to day lives. A reliance on structure to control our sensations and relationships. This emotional landscape which is in constant flux continues to be fleeting, changes shape, renovates and creates new foundations for future possibilities.
We want to make sense of life’s rhythm and create a sense of security in our ever changing experience.
