Artist Statement
I specialize in Land Art. Land art utilizes found natural materials to create site-specific installations that are documented through carefully composed photography. I only use found natural materials in my work. This includes stones, sticks, ice, shells, bones, petals, leaves, and even crab shells. I create pieces only when there is a natural fit between what I gather and my immediate surroundings. In this sense, my work is exceedingly site specific, dynamic, and often fleetingly ephemeral. Some efforts are literally blown away by the wind even before they are completed. Others decay over weeks, and a few are knocked down. In all cases, the work finds transcendent beauty in the hidden corners, small moments, and secret symmetries that abound in the natural world, but often go unnoticed and unseen by those passing through these ecosystems.
