Something about the process and result of deconstructing and rearranging didactic material into poetic abstractions reflects the transformative quality of experience I tend to encounter in wild ecosystems. These compositions are arranged to represent a blend of both memories of personal experience and imagined, idealized tableaus. I hope this series reminds viewers of their own awe-inspiring experiences in nature and the importance of respecting, restoring, and preserving America’s natural and cultural resources.
