Statement

A brief Statement

 

Reflecting on the past events of history, what is it that we are left with today? How should we remember? What should we remember? What does the past mean to me today?

 

I create art work using both historical events and historic places as subject matter. The images that I create are inspired from historical text, photographic images, historical paintings and drawings, as well as maps. They often include the very soil and plant matter collected from actual the sites. I combine these elements to evoke a common residue of historical experience. My aesthetic impetus is creating a new interpretation of human kind’s conflicts amongst our self’s and the relentless forces of our natural surroundings. Is there some way that I can add a vitalization to events that I have selected? What does that say about me and the time that I live in?

 

Some of the work I have chosen are from my Sacred Soil project. I have combined three elements of a historical “site”, in this case a battlefield. The elements are contemporary photography of a place, the actual earth from the site used in a painted form, and a word written in soil that symbolizes the soldier’s motivation for fighting.
