Patterns of Growth, New Artist Statement

October 24, 2013

Writing an artist statement about your work is hard. It is like painting a picture from a wispy diaphanous landscape with few markers to guide you. That’s why when the words match that subtle energetic experience of making art it is a huge joy! Here it is. Here is why my work is in the world:

We are intricately connected to and dependent on plants for our survival. Plants are dependent on humans to maintain an environment they can live in. We serve each other.

My work serves to illuminate the relationship we have with plants not only for food and air but for beauty.

We are coming out of the industrial age into an age of connectivity. Here and now we have an opportunity to marry the ancient wisdom of healing plant energies, the science of the industrial age, and our emerging era of interconnectdeness.

Patterns of Growth is a double entendre that points to the beautiful patterns in nature and the inner work we can embrace as humans in order to serve our survival.
