We live in a culture that has lost our deep connection with our home: the wilderness, the Earth. In my art, I visually explore the relationships between the people of our culture and the natural world. This in itself is a paradox, because humans are not separate from nature, but a part of nature. My work reflects an array of themes, from ecocide (the destruction of the environment) to a symbiotic interdependence between humans and our organic surroundings.
Paper as a medium is minimal, yet has infinite possibilities. In using a single sheet, the cut paper is intrinsically interconnected, every part attached to every other part, symbolizing our deep unity with nature. The fragile, intricate cuts and shadows encourage the viewer to look closer and longer, so that they may not only see the art, but experience its substance.
