Artist Statement

During EAST in 2021, I am focusing on my series of clear coated wood panel paintings depicting various pollinators paired with succulents and carnivorous plants. I am interested in exploring and sometimes altering these forms so they fit together like puzzle pieces, while maintaining a sense of reflection through symmetry. Aesthetically, ink blot symmetry is satisfying the part of my process that enjoys delving into the subconscious, and that fascination has led to the structure of these works. The various pollinators explored, such as hummingbirds, a moth and a bat, allow for a sense of variety while focusing on the growth and birth side of the life cycle. The carnivorous plants, on the flip side, allow discovery and contemplation of the decay side of growth, as these highly evolved systems are plants that digest their prey, evolving to succeed in nutrient-poor environments. The two sides of the cycle reflected upon the background of wood grain deepens the meditation with the added layer of visible growth rings, the striations of the substrate itself being a part of the cycle. The pollinators are depicted larger than life to allow the viewer to contemplate the beauty of their forms in relative safety to the predators they are shown with. Instead of creating an atmosphere of threat, I wanted to keep the paintings focused on the detail of forms, of how they fit together in my imagination to create pleasing images, and to allow the viewer a sense of calm to marvel at the intricacies of nature and evolution. The mirror element of these pieces, which I see as meditations, allow me to reflect on the IN and the OUT, as the breath cycle is a pleasing metaphor that has grown along with my contemplation through creating this series. While I have no scientific background, I love the research stage of beginning a new painting, and I chose to play with the scientific names of the plants or creatures for the titles of the paintings to both educate myself and explore the poetry that these old Latin names conjure.
