I am showing new drawings and collage works. I will be attending the opening reception is schedule for Thursday March 16 from 6 - 9 PM.
The works in this exhibition are based on memories of nature, which I approach with a sense of wonder, reverence, awe and mystery. My drawings and collages evoke certain landscapes and geological processes, exploring how materials settle into place over time. They draw inspiration from my observations of rocks, erosion, and the large- and small-scale changes that waves create along various shorelines.
Executed in graphite, the drawings in Dissipate record the lift, drag and back-and-forth movement of sediment as it is carried by waves, never deposited in the same position twice. I record small actions and traces along with larger sweeping marks.
My collages explore how rocks can be reconstructed from the fragments that remain after the processes of erosion and collapse have taken place. Using fragments of photographs of rocks that I was unable to bring home from Nova Scotia, I have built new rock surfaces, imagining what the rocks may look like before they break down, or how they may appear different after waves wear them down.
