I was raised in Northwest Indiana where some of the most beautiful landscapes abruptly end at the fences of giant industrial complexes. Urban landscapes that once thrived are now in a tailspin of economic and environmental disaster. Having been raised in that area, it seemed normal for beautiful sandy beaches to be interrupted by hazardous area signs, and gorgeous sunsets to have a smoke stack in silhouette with them. These scenes of my youth have imbedded themselves in my subconscious and have led me down a unique path of artistic exploration. I find it fascinating to incorporate hard industrial elements in works that address nature, or the human presence and form. In some of my work I have even played with the conundrum I find myself in considering the use of electricity generated locally, that I then consume to create work that generally is addressing the negativity of the system. The thought complexity, and conviction I put into my work is all directly connected with a guilt I feel as a postindustrial human.
