Artist Statement: Turning Points
“Focusing on gratitude, courage, and radical introspection has provided me with the space to expand the focus of my artistic practice and creativity. I often use my interactions with nature, specifically water, as a vehicle for reflection, healing, and restorative practice. Specifically using water as a subject matter often provides me with multiple pathways for attaining higher levels of personal awakening. Water is a turning point, a shapeshifter, always evolving out of itself and back into itself. It is still and in motion, reflective and transparent, pure, and polluted. I intend for the subsequent narrative created by my work to inspire viewers to willingly engage water and evoke consideration of it as a sacred treasure and catalyst for enlightenment. My goal is to provide a series of visual devices to facilitate the reintegration of our most important natural resource into our daily living and discourse.”
