Original spray paint and collage on paper. The background is 3 negatives of spray painted leaves with collaged rock cut outs onto which were cut out of a spray painted sheet of paper.

11" H X 15" W X 0" D. Unframed.

Historically, artists have always been drawn to representing nature, generally utilizing paint or photography. I combine these two techniques into a hybrid. The natural material becomes a negative through a process of arranging the objects on paper and spray painting over them, creating a play between negative and positive space. Either as the wind blows or by my own hand, the material is rearranged on the paper throughout the spraying process creating a sense of ephemerality. The work mimics the fleeting mood one often experiences amongst the trees.
Attracted to the systemic and organic structure of the environment in comparison to the linear approach in which mankind orders natural material, I put my own hand back into the process by furthering the development through print, drawing, and painting, as well as incorporating technology to push the overlap of two worlds.

This piece will ship flat between sturdy sheets of cardboard.
