I am influenced by forms and light invisible to the naked eye. I seek beauty in the realms of science, astronomy, microscopy. Optical technology allows us to glimpse the unseeable. My work reflect on these technological revelations, and try to grasp what would be unknowable without them.
My printmaking revels in time and speed, abstracted by telescopes peering into the deep past or microscopes delving into hidden worlds. Throughout history the night sky has been a screen for our projected dreams. My work seeks to reflect this screen, and to find others to illuminate.
Scientific studies are currently focusing less on the possibility and more on the certainty and speed with which climate change is taking place. My practice is not obviously engaged with worldly issues, working directly to transform the global scale of climate change into a human narrative. But more to have it subtly resonate within my work.
I continue to explore moments of transition and turbulence in the landscape. I choose to show the beauty rather than the devastation, a celebration of what we stand to lose.
