“I create work by borrowing the raw materials of our planet itself and utilizing the primeval impulse of mark-making. I contemplate deep time, and the current trajectory our climate takes through materials that include: dust, clay, iron, charcoal, ash, asphalt, insect nests, discarded materials, and found objects.”
