Built one upon the other, the imperfect structures of the squares and rectangles hold within them different chapters and times. Natural forms abound, and hints of far-off expeditions of discovery are promised. Primal forms, natural forms, show the way — a map of sorts within which to navigate time, through personal and universal narratives. Layering and objects of different opacities show that despite our internal stories often times being jumbled and inaccurate, there is richness there, waiting to be discovered and unearthed." — Marilet

Made from earth pigments and all natural materials, the pieces in this collection are all particles of nature re-formed, connecting the world outside with our worlds indoors. They have a steady presence and are composed of imperfect structures, which despite their irregularities (or perhaps thanks to them) are resilient and flexible, states of being I hope to embody. The imagery used is composed of positive and negative areas which invite the eye to move around, playfully distracting the mind from its preoccupations: a visual meditation of sorts.
