Edges and Horizons, 2023

An exhibition at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota, Winona, MN in their Lillian Davis Hodges Gallery, Jan-Feb 2023.

Responses to specific natural and urban landscapes are the starting point for my work, and I often begin with photographs and drawings created on site. I then transform and abstract this material through a process of accumulation and collage. My process includes aspects of chance and play, but also patient craft and revision.

I consider the course of making each construction a metaphor for the complex process of experiencing any landscape space. I wonder through my work: how can one capture the feeling of the world being impossibly vast and unrepresentable, but also at times being incredibly specific, small, and clear?
