“Much of the subject matter in my work is influenced by nature and spirituality as I view them interrelated. I frequently pull inspiration from the hill country where the landscape is unforgiving at times and arid. In contrast within this struggle for resources you also will see large healthy old oak trees. Our current landscape provides a base within my work and our purpose in life. I often reference a point in the future where the potential of nonexistence aids my ability to work backwards, documenting what is in front of us.”
Unlike his usual work this piece was electrified in water to create the unique chromatic color. The void of language found within the roots, lets a viewer reinterpret their own meaning for what is important in their own lives.
