Its not really about running away, its about the desire to run away.
What is the impulse to divert our attentions from reality towards a focus purely on the imagination. Perhaps when we look towards the horizon, where the cotton candy sky has been untethered, we gaze at our own mortality, neither with apathy nor disdain. We stand at the precipice not in terror, but in awe.
My experience spent along the Florida coast continues to impact the theoretical parameters of my sculptural installations. Within my work, horizon is the convergence or separation of two dissonant bodies, whether it be land and sky or life and mortality. By juxtaposing seemingly unrelated elements such as moving image and found object, deliberate separation acts as a substrate for individual ideation and meaning. The relationships between materials allow for everything and nothing all at once. The endless possibilities for interpretations excite me and are freeing.
