DESCRIPTION: Paintings, , Oil & photo emulsion on cast Hydrocal plaster

ARTIST STATEMENT: I went to the Arctic on a sailing ship in 2013, returning with 2,000 photographs of its astounding landscape. The experience continues to penetrate and reverberate, the more so with every passing headline of melting ice and breaking glaciers. My work uses abraded, traumatized cast plaster as a substrate upon which to house my emulsified photographs commingled with layers of oil paint to create objects in which, according to one reviewer, it’s as if reality is shuddering and breaking apart.
