Poetics of Space Series
These sculptures and drawings were assembled from elements and ideas rooted in exploring the natural realm, describing my relationship to the land as it relates to the specificity of place. Utilizing the rich cultural and natural elements of the Southern landscape, I sought to form a poetic dialog between the often overlooked, the hidden, and quiet moments of life. From my use of Georgia red clay to hand foraged pecans preserved in blow glass, these works guide the audience into discovering the wonder of the unseen world that surrounds us.
Finding inspiration from objects and environments that create a notion of beauty, awe, or wonder. This body of work examines these experiences through the use of materials and artifacts that are unique to these moments and settings. These sculptural objects
and drawings encourage questions related to the specificity of one's surroundings, and how these environments and objects affect both mind and body.
