Artist Statement

I am always conscious of my place in the landscape and my impact on the environment. In my work I respond to visual influences that reflect time through cyclical natural processes. My work has been influenced by information gathered at various “sites”, places in the natural environment that I have responded to visually. The connection of the natural in conjunction with mechanized systems that we as humans are a part of, influence my work.  I am interested in how we as human beings in the 21st century interact with the landscape. We often have the best intentions in mind but in actuality we cause more harm than good. Through the tangible experiences that shape our lives we see life, death, decay, and rebirth. These extremes in life and nature make me aware of my own impermanence and just like the highest mountains whither to sand so will my body turn to dust. I make objects that represent these natural processes of time and life and show a depleted barren depiction of the future of our fragile landscape.

The idea of time in my work is activated on two levels, one of actual time that I occupy and also geological time that has come before me and will continue long after I’m gone. I am interested in the current time in history in regards to the human interaction and neglect of stewardship to the land that we all share. Whether that is the depletion of natural resources or the over excavated landscape in search of these finite materials. The landscape in which we are currently observing is being transformed by human interactions rather than geological time. Through this process our civilization is altering and shaping the vary planet that we all inhabit and re writing our own geological history in the dirt.

My work has a sense of artifact with a raw natural appearance. I respond to artifactual quality of my work on a visceral and conceptual level. I see the artifact as being able to speak not just about change but also about context and content of a civilization.  I use hand built and mold processes to create an environment for the clay to react naturally to the elements of the firing. To allow the clay to do what in nature it would without my interaction. I incorporate my hand through use of tooling of the surface to create faults and tears to insinuate the infiltration of the man and machine. I see this way of working as cyclical and returning to the bare essentials of art-making and finding the essence of the material and its structure. The violence in volcanic eruptions and earthquakes are what shape this earth and create the beautiful structures that I directly respond to. I incorporate these observations into my work but in conjuncture the land is also being changed through mining, drilling, and excavation.  I see this accumulation of processes as a way to show the honest of our landscape.

Brookhaven College Student Art Sale & Fundraiser Dec 7

goblets

The Art Kids at Brookhaven College Are Crazy/Busy Gearing Up For Their ONLY Student Art Sale and Fundraiser Of The Year!

And when I say “Kids,” I mean students aged from 17-75!
Something fabulous is going on at Brookhaven College! The energy is palpable- the music is blasting in the sculpture courtyard while sparks fly from metal,
pottery wheels whirl in Clay, waxes are finely carved and cast in Jewelry, blocks are inked in Printmaking, and students stand for hours before their easels,
absorbed with color, light and shadow in Drawing and Painting.

The Particulars:
Student Art Sale and Fundraiser, hosted by the Art Club of Brookhaven College
When: Wednesday December 7, 9am-6pm.
utopia2bowl

Where: On the campus of Brookhaven College, in the lobby of “S” building (Student Services building)
Featuring: handmade jewelry, ceramics, printmaking, photography,drawings, painting
How shoppers can pay: cash or check.
Free admission and plenty of free parking.

Why You (and everybody else) Should Shop At Our Sale:
This isn’t the typical week-end craft sale/carnival being held by every church and elementary school this time of year-
“We ain’t stringin’ beads”- as one longtime metalsmith student told me. This is a sale of art and fine craft by budding artists passionate
about their work, developing their own voice, as well as experienced artists who have taken classes for years striving to refine their work.

This is an excellent opportunity for the public to buy exceptional and unusual handmade fine craft and art at very reasonable prices!

Brookhaven’s Student Art Club- 20% of sales goes to scholarships, and to bring artists to campus for workshops/demos.
