surreal imagery reflecting a dialogue between the artist and nature
This series was birthed from my love of nature. I began by photographing subjects and scenes, and then used digital tools to manipulate the photos into mirrored, kaleidoscopic imagery. Bold and mysterious, these images can be perceived as optical illusions that evoke a sense of pareidolia, in that they prompt the viewer to continuously re-examine their perceptions in an effort to make meaning.
"Inner Life" stems from a vivid interplay of intellect and emotion, combined with the workings of my conscious and subconscious. In this light, the artwork can be viewed as a dialogue between the inner life of the artist and her surroundings, reflecting a desire to reorder the elements of the external world.
