High Tides Rising XXX, woodcut, line etching, India ink, watercolor, 24 x 18 in.
My work investigates moments of ecological shifts through the lens of environmental events such as rising sea levels and animal migrations. I explore tensions between natural structures and the synthetic, cartographic elements used to map scientific information, pushing the contrast between mechanical line and organic form.
I am interested in portraying layers of time as they relate to geological history and how ecosystems are altered over time from both human-made and natural forces. I reflect on scientific data and mapping pertaining to the fragility of our ecosystems and pressing issues of shifting climatic conditions.
