“Chaos is the order of nature and order is the nature of man.”
“A spoon full of sugar helps the medicine go down.”
I strive to create art that is both beautiful and meaningful, art that is aesthetically and intellectually accessible and deals with important themes. This current body of work is on a theme that has informed a great deal of my work over the past couple of decades -- mankind’s complicated and vast relationship with nature.
We use nature how we see fit: we strive to bring order to it, we seek to explain it in a language that doesn’t belong to it, we try to make it prettier, we try to make it better, we try to make it more profitable. Some efforts succeed, some don’t.
This series, “Decorating nature” is about all that and is also all about beauty.
Beauty is the best friend of consideration. If a photo is pretty, the viewer will spend more time with it. If a viewer spends more time with it, they will begin to think beyond the surface of it and into the meaning of it. That’s the dynamic I hope to create in viewers of my work.
Lastly and maybe most importantly, this body of work is meant to be fun.
