The underlying conceptual patterns and questions that structure my artistic
practice grapple with the nature of impermanence and of human relationships to
and within place. The necessity of sustaining these relationships becomes ever
more pressing as humans negotiate new ways of existing in a world of
accelerating change, connectivity, and uncertainty. This is the framework in
which water—as material, subject, and metaphor—is emerging as my primary focus
and medium. Water, in all its forms, is a relational material, a universal
solvent, of which we are all composed and through which we are all connected.
