My current work, After the Disaster, focuses on the strength and fragility of the natural world. Pieces in After the Disaster range in size from 7 by 10 inches to 16 by 20 inches and were completed in either graphite or colored pencil on paper. The intimate works invite close viewing that reveals miniature worlds, illuminating the connection between the microscopic and macroscopic. Delicately rendered through a labor-intensive process, my compositions are meditations on time and inner projections of both the disasters and triumphs of imagined land and mind scapes – personal, cultural and ecological in scope. The drawings were created from a practice that combines projection, stencil and improvisation along with perceptual observation. After the Disaster imagines worlds born out of the rubble and takes on a nonhuman perspective considering a time after our own. This isn't a dark or pessimistic place, it just is. The works ruminate on the possibilities of the unfamiliar. The world is much more than what we have begun to know.
