abstract cityscape made of photographic collage and silver foil with layers of resin.
These collages began as a self recycling program for my photography, I wanted to give them new life in an imaginary landscape. However when I began doing these collages I never dreamt they would go so far and people would be collecting them and that I would in fact be working towards creating a whole new world in Recycled Landscapes through my ongoing project Through the Trees. So now I shoot especially to create a color pallet for a particular piece- sometimes I just want to work with new colors I find that day, sometimes I go hunting for colors, it has in fact become a process unto itself.
I am an artist with technical leanings and I find these collages meld between semi organic and some digital in their appearance, all hand cut piece by piece, a permanent collage mandala. I intend to create landscapes to phase out on hopefully relaxing the eyes after a hard days brow furrowing. Inspired heavily by the presence of my daughter in my life and dissecting and amending visual communication to relate on a simpler plane of understanding. This work is heavily reliant on a need to have a repetitive task to meditate on cutting each piece individually, none of the pieces mean much on their own but together they make something more then what they were. Trying to create an artistic process in line with holistic earth living authenticity I am my own self supplying art maker as long as I remain also a photographer and i trust that photography flows through my life as sure as breath.

My art is a dance between documenting the world as it stands and then reconstructing my own world which reflects concern for our natural world as well as the divide created by technology in regards to both the natural world and our own nature. My reconstructed world focuses on the what will it be as nature disappears. I create worlds of simple archetypes repeated or soundscapes of birds to fill the space when birds do not.
The satisfaction for me is having both aspects; the documentarian side which wishes to capture and preserve experience and the other half which considers in fear of future humans on Mars trying to understand the beauty of earth when left with a simple array of shapes representing what was, cave paintings of the future.
