My recent work is focused on found and photographed pieces of organic matter. These are images of creatures and other debris that have evolved over time --- things that were once living and breathing or part of another entity altogether. I am interested in this altered state of things, placing the subject in suspended animation and attempting to understand it through repeated renderings and by concentrating on specific details. It is my goal to realize my own personal connection with these lifeforms and how they relate to my memories and experiences with the natural world.
