My work considers the influence of solastalgia to our perceptions of the natural environment. Our eco-biographies are changing at a pace that is difficult to navigate due to climate change. These large scale drawings encourage the viewer to an experience of immersion. The white lines represent ideas about interconnectivity infused with a deep concern for the earth’s fragile ecological systems. Encapsulations of images furrow the surface of the paper. A fingerprint, a whale’s underbelly, or rising waters are suggested as the viewer oscillates with macro and micro visions of the earth.
