"Matter" Series, 2002

This body of work is inspired by my love for the landscape, and my sympathy to the larger environment that is both powerful and fragile. What ties us together, and binds us to the earth is the underlying basis for "Matter."

This theme is a confluence of various readings of the word "matter" — as it relates to the "physical nature of mass," matter as "a subject that is being considered," and also as "an issue to be resolved." The landscape represents both growth and separation, providing a basis for relation and linking of the individuals.
