Portfolio > Rock | Salt + Wonder

My work is an exploration of the forces of gravity, lightness and the landscapes that exist between. Rooted in an interest in topography and transcendence, I use wood relief, aquatint and collage to construct monochromatic landscapes. I treat each mark as if it were a full form, worthy of handling carefully, placing down gently. I select, examine and evaluate. Each landscape undergoes an evolution, with major shifts in climate and direction. I add elements that make me geographically uncomfortable and then search for balance. The push and pull add layers. Negative spaces have a fluid weight. I look for tension, unexpected stability and grace.
