My work examines the nature of things, nātūra, derived from the Latin verb nascare, to be born. I believe all things are born of water, air, and dust. My works are meditations of the elements, faded with time and distance. Each piece tries to uncover an image that exists somewhere between reality and memory. Revealed are distant landscapes, a mountain on water, or the deep sky at night.
I imagine this place beyond what we see and hint at it, drawing its subtle movement, its fragility and lightness. A place of stillness. My work is quiet in order to hear its echoes and see this place as it moves in and out of time. A place, perhaps, from where we were born.
