Artist Statement
I am interested in the impacts of Climate Change in this moment of the Anthropocene on small marine animals, which often escape our notice. In my series, "Critical Masses," I symbolically portray such human interactions with a central, surreal element, superimposed on a realistically painted overview of a shell midden. In "Oyster Melt" I have alluded to the "melting" away of oysters as their ability to successfully produce the calcium carbonate required to build their shells is compromised in our increasingly acidified oceans, represented by the large drip of calcium carbonate bisecting the painting.
