Jan. 2021 Auburn “Art on Main” installation –

Installation was on-view from Jan. 7, 2021 to April 8, 2021 at 1 E. Main St., Auburn WA 98002.


One Main Street Gallery, Auburn, WA

This installation project conjoins elemental references of structure and space; intermingling historical precedents, figure-ground studies of cities, miniature inhabitations, archeology, and imagined places into sculptures and paintings of constructed inhabitations, and imagined miniature worlds.

The built environment is central to my focus. My artwork is very much influenced by a passion for architecture and ecology, and is a confluence of natural and architectonic forms. I place these two paradigms in juxtaposition, in order to keep questioning the balance of human interaction with the natural world.
