Can You Hear The Ground?

Continuing to explore my interest in how energy travels, a natural evolution was to incorporate figures in motion into the abstract grounds. Drawing from my figurative sketches, I pair the movement, from dancers to swimmers, with a particular painted environment. Then, carefully considering how they interact, I extend the abstraction using intricately defined branches that grow into the figure in action. Each piece, a contemplation on how we move through our environment, how the environment moves through us, examines how we influence each other.
