Artwork & Writing > Autobiography in Water, 2013 - present

Autobiography in Water depicts water as a source of renewal, leisure, tradition, longing, helplessness and fear, as well as a delineator of space and the passage and suspension of time. It is site-specific, and since July 2013 it has required extensive travel throughout Texas, Idaho, the Pacific Northwest, California, Arizona, Florida, the Canadian Rockies, Iceland and New Zealand. The artworks depict the places I took for granted before moving to the Midwest and those where one visit altered the course of the future. They also include the unknown, those sites for which I yearn, where my story is yet unwritten. The pools, rivers, lakes and oceans offer continuity and familiarity in an effort to connect me to the locales that I long to call home.
