Artist Statement Submitted 2019

The nature-based installations, which began in the mid-seventies, are created to enhance a viewer’s perception of the environment and our relationship with nature. These environmental installations evolved from my thoughts on the mechanism of natural systems in time. This series serves as an ephemeral memento to the resilience of nature and an affirmation of the continuum of systems within the natural order. My nature-based installations speak in a hybrid language from three distinct realms: architecture, sculpture and landscape. My thoughts revolve around time, movement, history, culture, community, dialogue, spirituality, entropy and regeneration. The architectural situations I create have recurring motifs that include; sanctuary, labyrinth, the golden ratio, and a place for dialogue. I hope to achieve a synthesis of systems from the natural world in the service of architectonic ideals.
