FAUNA & FLORA

Nature and how we relate to it is the central theme of my work. I employ a hybrid form of painting, drawing and collage as a metaphor for the continual cycle of decay and regeneration on Earth. In each work, I carefully build its history as layers of paint, hand-drawn and printed vintage ephemera, toile, Victorian weaving patterns, barnacles, lichens, webs and other natural elements develop into an eclectic composition. Fauna and flora are protagonists interacting with what humans leave behind in the environment– ranging from a Louis XV chair to a muscle car or vintage radio. Paper scraps and fragments of what we leave behind as a civilization address the transience of our era. Old and new come together in my work, celebrating nature, memory and the cycle of life.
