My work is a Request.
A request to the viewer to look and look again, don’t stop at superficial information.
A request to notice how time and light transform your visual world. Experience that a still-life or a room acts as a sun-dial.
A request to see the alignment of the micro and macro worlds: how much a reflecting jar of water resembles the photographs we see of our galaxy.
A request to see that we humans are part of this complex and fragile natural web of life.
A request to concentrate and dream at the same time. Just for a moment, hang your soul up on a bough with apple blossoms.
A request to marvel at the power of a seed to put out roots and the power of a bud to flower. Allow this observed power to energize your efforts to conserve nature on our planet.
Let the perfection of a moment of light summon the awe and love that it deserves.
