Artist Statement
My art practice is heavily influenced by nature and its deformation through the anthropocentric lens of humanity. Spanning many genres, formats, and disciplines, I often attempt to find the supposed edge between us and that which we consider ourselves apart. Through drawing I look inward to produce seemingly-natural forms born from repetitive, meditative monotony, utilizing the tool I personally associate with mindless doodling: the Gel-Pen. With my photography and filmmaking I try to direct our gaze at the intersect between worlds, illuminating the detritus of humanity. I am constantly pulled towards the “ugliness” of trash and the “beauty” of nature, and our constant need to pervert “our” world in order to suit the perceived aesthetics of humanity.
