I’m overly interested in the in-betweens; the tension, the irresolution, the ephemera, and the instability created by the space in-between two opposing forces. My work relies on the process of a meditative state and responding to happenstance to understand the conflict between what exists, what was destroyed, and the remnants of what is left behind. Using shadow imagery and various methods of light manipulation, I explore the fleeting interactions and obstructions that exist in the dichotomy between the artificial and natural worlds.
