As an artist that wants to preserve the landscape, I recall the forms of Earth I visit and revive them with resin, clay and paint. I mix basalt from local cliffs into my ceramics and reform the earth in my kiln.
This exploration of surface and layer is repeated in all of my work. My series of "Broken Earth" asks questions about our changing environment with mixed media.
Changes in precipitation, air temperatures, sea levels, rivers, fish populations, tree growth, disturbances in forests, nutritional values of food sources and the future evolution of our societies are much like a delicately balanced house of cards. We cannot ignore our role as humans.
Our carbon footprint must continue to be evaluated, studied and publicly informed so that humanity can be empowered to make the small and large changes necessary for a stable future.
