The artworks are unique handmade sculptural pieces that address the important personal connection people have with nature. In this series, I am cutting up photographs of landscapes and layering them in various ways, creating multidimensional pieces. Utilizing human biological patterns, such as those of veins in the eyes or brain circuits, suggests the responsibility for our impressions and impact on nature. In some of the works, parts of the landscape have been removed, revealing black, representing the erosion and absence caused by climate change, but in others, there is nature visible underneath, suggesting renewal and hope. I am also wrapping photographs around sticks and weaving the landscape together as a symbol of both the destruction caused by climate change and our ability to take action.
