Treading Blue

Grief can overwhelm one’s senses, intertwining emotions and abstracting perspectives of the lineage of reality, which in turn affects original memories. I have been creating my own memorial death landscapes as ways of processing and honoring my personal loss. My work closely inspects the concept of phenomenal experience relating to perspective and the effects of memory on the reality of death. I am also exploring the interconnected relationship of human and nature when experiencing grief. Through my work I am beginning to address and understand my internal chaos of processing a loss through relationships to specific landscapes and my revisited memories of them.

Acute Love and Endless inevitable

(Continuation of In Passing and blurred boundaries series) This series examines the phenomenal experience of reconnection between ones whole self, the natural world and the places in-between life and loss. Working through the abstract idea of sensory experience that imprints and lingers internally and externally on the body, the books and photographs reveal the qualities of the invisible and connect them to visible experiences. The imagery and written elements are created through recalling past emotive experiences and combining them with the related photographic imagery of being either completely present within a natural space, or reflecting on a sensory memory of the place.
