Abstract

My work is an exploration of abstract landscapes of the Oklahoma and West Texas Panhandle regions, the land I call home. It serves as a metaphorical mapping for both nature and humanity as fluid realms, while utilizing concepts of home, comfort, and wellbeing drawn from my own personal experiences. My artworks contemplate meanings of entropy and transformation, informed by the evolution of geological landscapes and by changes in the human body and psyche over time. I use the material of bedsheets as both a medium and a tool to conceptualize these ideas. My work aims to inspire my audience to contemplate the interconnectedness between these fluid realms and to appreciate the shared patterns that my artworks display.
