Artist Statement

Below is an old Artist Statement I wrote about my work with the Great Salt Lake.

The mystical and ever-changing landscape of the Great Salt Lake in Utah's Great Basin is a highly curious subject for exploration. The story of space and time is told in surreal ways as wind and water carve and sculpt the salted sand into sinuous curves. Light and shadow weave into the water and rake across the sand, emphasizing the patterns and forms.

It's an elemental and otherworldly landscape, paired back to the minimal: sand, salt, water, and sky, with some mountains hosted along the distant horizon. Plant and animal life is limited. Yet in this seemingly basic environment, complexity and intricacy are tireless if one only looks. As an artist integrating myself into this space, I find surprising worlds through the lens of the camera.
