Artist Statement

My work is fueled by anxiety about our current environmental crisis, and it reflects an attempt to view these events through the lens of geologic time. I may experience enduring dismay at the prospects of rising oceans, shrinking agricultural production, increased natural disasters and mass extinction, but I also recognize that the processes of life and evolution will continue with or without us. New ecosystems will emerge and new species will thrive. I find this process inspiring and immensely beautiful, as well as a bit comforting in the face of potential disaster. I try to convey both the dread, the splendor, along with the absurdity of human inaction in work that samples and recombines elements from art history, illustration, and pop culture
