Summer Garden - 2012
This vibrant explosion of colorful blooms captures center stage in any room.
This series examines the way we convert natural areas to suburbs, roads and malls then buy replacement parts to restore our idyllic versions of pastoral bliss. We decide where the trees go and what the colors will be until Nature insinuates itself back into the mix in glorious ways.
This series which is closely linked with the 'Suburban Conflux' pieces examines the collision points of Nature and Humans in the city. We build our fortresses of concrete, steel and stone but Nature will find any little crack and slip back in. Left alone, they will overwhelm the structures we consider permanent and hide them from all but the most dedicated archeologists.
"My Artwork would not exist without a thriving global pottery community.
In the isolation of a studio, an artist can begin to feel like an island, but in truth we are all part of archipelagoes; chains of islands loosely connected by a stream of information that enhances our Artwork.”
