A sound work of art will engage a myriad of viewers in thinking critically about the themes that are being presented. A similar process should be applied when an attempt is made to interpret the relationship one possesses with his or her environment.
When I started this project I had become increasingly aware of the relationships people have between their environments, how these relationships influence decisions and the conflict of being a product of your environment versus your environment being a product of you.
The panels themselves are quite literally a product of my environment. The panels were sourced from decaying and vacant structures found within my immediate surroundings. Geometric and typographic elements are then arranged due to their relationships over multiple layers of paint and epoxy resin.
In my process I do not plan or map out the final image, rather a result of adding and subtracting elements that in the end, will have a relationship with the dominant forms.
These elements exist on several levels. An undeniable state of decay, combined with the cyclical nature of progress and growth, presents a resonance in the interaction between inhabitants and their environments.
