DESCRIPTION

This work began with walking and the possibility of becoming lost. Without maps or a destination, I immersed myself in my environment, fully present and open to the unknown. In both cities and in forests,  I found myself in unexpected moments where the places I know suddenly became unfamiliar. Through treetops, condos, and hydro wires, I sought small openings to spaces that are vast and unfolding—that, if we let them, remind us of what lies beyond our small horizons. In losing myself, both the internal and the external became expansive. A thundering front, a disappearing cloud, the rise of breath, and the fall of feet—all were sensed and understood through the movement of my body. I found these spaces once more as I made pours of water and worked with powdered graphite, metals, and minerals. Through movement and the reactions between the materials, vast and shifting topographies emerged, evoking the ephemeral and the physical.
