- The urban and industrial landscape is the source and inspiration of my work. This landscape is invariably one of transition, and its constant processes of construction, decay and demolition are the overriding themes of the city and my work. Through time, the city manifests the disparities between the ideal and the real, the plan and its materialization, permanence and decay, memory and loss, and time and stasis.
My exploration of this landscape arose from a deep sense that our relation to, and interconnection with the built environment profoundly affects us. Our relationship to specific places, especially to those we are unfamiliar with, is often elusive; however, one cannot ignore that these places affect us and that they and we are interconnected. This awareness compels my search for clues as to the nature of place and time in the visual and material evidence of the built environment.
My work, provides an engagement between image, place, material, and form so that issues concerning time, memory and the built environment may be considered by the viewer. Rather than providing answers, my work resists conclusiveness so as to highlight the irreconcilable and changeable aspects of our urban and industrial landscapes. It reflects upon the fragility of our decisions and endeavors in counterpoint with the usual tempo of our lives.
