When I was a child, one of my favorite things to do was to run through an empty field near our house. It wasn’t empty though; it was full of weeds and grass. Running through the weeds, with my hair flying, the smell of crushed grass in the air, brought me such joy that I have tried to recreate that feeling with this series. As you walk around each work you will see the light and colors shift just as I did when I ran through the field when I was little.
One day the field disappeared and soon there was a building there instead. I realized that weeds are the most marginalized plants on earth. The startling beauty and magic of weeds is ignored and generally thought of as imperfect, to be neglected, destroyed or done away with. I learned about the Japanese aesthetic of Wabi-Sabi, which reveres authenticity, and imperfection. This series is a meditation on the extraordinary beauty of all that is, Wabi-Sabi, regarded as imperfect, transitory and marginal.

Printed on brushed aluminum, these works bring a modern twist to old master techniques used in the long tradition of still life paintings.
