Norfolk Arts Art Walk Artist June 30, 2023 “along the way, above the sea” a joint exhibition opening at MacArthur Center

The driving force of my work is a deep respect for nature. Someone with a similar paradigm may find my visual language readily or directly, while others may find irony or a serious humor. Steering myself and my work away from futility while also approaching the enormous scale of our environmental crisis is my highest goal. I am developing a practice of shaping space that encourages an accountable slowing of mass consumption and provokes self-realization of the absurd, unsustainable, and undeniable status of all ecosystems. Furthering this paradoxical goal, I hope to achieve this awareness by layering the spiritual pursuit of playfulness, grace, release, and of course love. The idea that we can remain positive in the face of humanity’s most critical challenge ironically mirrors my hope that art can truly function inside this reality. I idolize the legacy of land artists, and in turn envy the efficiency of mainstream ideas. This vicious dichotomy shall grow a stage in which to communicate about and through what truly connects us all, Mother Earth. Baltimore’s Rinehart School of Sculpture is my new home base, and I intend to engage the local complexity as a petri dish in which to grow this artistic message.
