The content of my work is conveyed through the motifs of landscape and artifact. Landscape is a metaphor for existence and evokes sonance, or absence. Artifacts confirm, or question, existence. An artifact can depict landscape and function in landscape. My ritual of activity forms the work and the work itself interacts in ritual.
Styrene embodies transformative and plastic properties. Styrene can be shaped and layered and joined in a modular fashion. It is brittle and vulnerable yet can become slab-like and formidable with the application of enough paint. The heavily compressed plastic dots that form a sheet of styrene are analogous to pixels.
