TACTILE VISIONS

‚Äč

Human presence shapes a landscape, and by altering an environment we ultimately alter ourselves.

 

This adage just begins to summarize some of the concerns observed in our swiftly shifting ecology. My intention with these prints was to present a familiar yet slightly skewed vision of an ecology that was familiar to me: the rocky coast of the northeast coast. The depicted scenes reveal the traces of deteriorated human development and technology; fences, towers, columns of smoke, humanoid figures, linger as reminders of a way of life which was not sustainable. This body of work addresses human altered environment, cyclical nature, deterioration, resilience, and longing.
