Artist statement on High Tides Rising
In this new series High Tides Rising I address the theme of rising ocean levels due to Earth’s warming temperatures and explore how the landscape is altered over time.
This work reflects on scientific data and mapping pertaining to pressing issues of shifting climatic conditions. I explore the juxtaposition of organic form and synthetic cartographic elements used to map scientific information. This subject matter serves as a jumping off point
for addressing the fragility of our environment and Earths extreme and shifting weather patterns.
My intent is to guide the viewer to a deeper sense of relationship to the environment, generating mindful impact and forward thinking dialogue.
