artist statement

Using biomorphic images, my work examines the microscopic, mutually dependent life systems found in pond water. By giving these images a presence, the work speaks to our fragile position in the cosmos, and encourages the viewer to consider the unseen minutiae that constantly hover beneath every surface of the planet.
