For me, making art is a ritualistic process bound up in observations of the material world. It speaks to my desire to interpret the world around me. How can spaces we consider "ordinary" allow an opportunity for transcendence? Can imagining a space or object from the point of view of a tree or forest animal, ruin/rune, or rock allow for a hidden world to filter through? Can we imagine the rituals that may have taken place in a particular location? I believe that our imaginations can offer an alternative perspective on what our conditioned minds tell us is real. By accepting the notion that magic exists all around, that the ordinary is actually extraordinary, we may connect to something greater than ourselves. I identify this as an illusory goal; a gesture of hope.
