STRATA

Strata is a series of works - sculptures and derivative digital paintings - combining the natural with hand and digitally made elements. Various plant materials - primarily twigs and branches - are used in forming structural frameworks for sculptures and image creation.

"Strata" presents itself in many forms. Some works are direct constructions of materials. Other works are more complex, where pieces are constructed, then photographed, and the resulting imagery used as source material for digitally manipulated imagery that is printed and collaged back onto the construction it came from.

"Strata" represents how structure, whether from nature or man made, have inherent relationships that intertwine and reflect back on themselves. The natural world is caught between the structures of the man made world, yet it is the man made world that relies on the structures of nature to live and breathe.
