I’m currently engaged in the creation of two interrelated bodies of work: Cosmic Debris and Wavelength(s). Both explore, in different ways and through differing media, the vastness of the universe, the transience of the individual, and the life force that connects all things. Aesthetically and thematically, neon is the grammar that links together these two bodies of work. The narrative juxtaposes the impermanence of a single life and the infinite nature of life itself, a dual state of being that is both unsettling and comforting. These short phrases rendered in neon represent that enigma to me: evoking the cycle of breath, the cycle of stars, and the deep sensation of serenity that comes from contemplating the night sky.
