This series of photographs are driven by my reaction to nature’s ever-fleeting metamorphosis, especially as evidenced by the extreme seasonal changes where I live in upstate New York. I also draw upon my lifelong preoccupation with collecting and displaying natural found ephemera, highlighting my yearning to literally hold onto nature’s evanescence. Because I am an innately impulsive gatherer, I work in a similarly obsessive manner creatively as I organize, rearrange & merge multiple elements into my obsessively created configurations as each photograph becomes much like a shadow box of treasured jewels. The interplay of conflicting seasonal elements and stylized colors helps me to augment the illusive, ethereal component that I believe is crucial to reflecting the otherworldly ambiance I sense as I ponder nature’s ever-increasing change and my innate apprehension of the repercussions of the ever-changing climate globally.
