Portfolio > Even Mountains Cast Shadows

My work explores the fine line between nature and artifice. I am interested in the history we inherit and the constructed truths that arrive to us as readymade structures of thought. This concept of construction plays an important role in my work and I am constantly questioning whether constructed beliefs can seamlessly apply to the natural world, and therefore appear as believable or illusionistic. I think of these structures of thought as mountains made of our own breath and thoughts, and they ominously loom in our contemporary landscape. These mountains are barriers or obstacles with which we continuously contend and we stand in their shadows.
