From Beauty to Burden
Traver Gallery

Currently our society is at point where relationships are both distanced and strengthened by the isolation and interconnectivity of product development and technology. This new work quietly and emotively articulates our urbanization and the use (or misuse) of nature through the forms of writing and portraiture, specifically human and pigeon. These responsive works are gestures that both acknowledge and question relationships between history and modernization, and between oneself and the environment – both built and natural. They suggest a new way of looking at our desire and tendency to control and intervene.
