Works on paper, 2016

As one fascinated by the things we cannot see, I seek to observe moments happening in the periphery of our experience: A cloud casting a shadow as it crosses the sun, the ever-changing shoreline where land and water meet, the sensory experience of the wind, and the warmth of a shimmering light touching the skin. This series of drawings are part of an ongoing project inspired by the weather. I record and transform weather data to reflect the effects of climate change with regard to freak winter storms, extreme weather changes, and highly fluctuating temperatures. After using digital manipulation, I laser cut an output of patterns derived from the satellite imagery of NASA of the Chesapeake region. The dates and locations in the titles indicate when the source images were collected.

This site-specific installation was created at the University of Maryland Gallery as part of an ongoing project based on weather. Since 2015, I have been recording and transforming weather data to reflect the effects of climate change with regard to freak winter storms, extreme weather changes, and highly fluctuating temperatures. After using digital manipulation, I laser cut an output of patterns derived from the satellite imagery of NASA of the Chesapeake region. From there, my process becomes more intuitive as I use the resulting templates for drawing, painting, and making installations.

Unseen Patterns

Curated by Susan Laney of Laney Contemporary (Savannah), Unseen Patterns, was a site-specific installation in a solo show at the Westobou Gallery in Augusta GA. Based on aerial maps of the Savannah River and satellite imagery of weather patterns of the Chesapeake Bay and Georgia region, I incorporated a cumulative data compiled between Feb. 28, 2015, 11:41 am, the Chesapeake Bay to Aug. 24, 2016, 9:03 AM Georgia. With the use of software, I turned this visual data into patterns which were cut into a wide array of shapes and used as templates to paint the layers of information embedded within the shapes to create fluid, open compositions in which suspended felt and Mylar seemed to defy gravity.
