My art practice is concentrated on the contrast between the natural world and the human-made. The structures we erect are permanent and regular, designed to withstand years of weathering. We cut away earth to make way for concrete walkways, remove layers of material for roads and bridges. Despite all this effort to control our environment with straight lines and grid-like patterns, buildings still crumble and roads still crack.The environment readily accepts the cycle of growth, life, and death; but humanity has imposed conflict by attempting to assert dominance over natural systems. This has led me to seek an understanding of the disparity between fabricated and the organic.
