Disruptions is a series of twenty highly-detailed pen and ink drawings interrupted by rectangular voids. The work looks toward our relationship with the natural world and a shared desire to seek connection with an environment that is collapsing. We want to see more but can’t since our view is obstructed, whether it is by something in between or because the scene is disappearing altogether.  

This body of work reflects upon the climate crisis we slide deeper into each day, with a calm eye, a gradual loss of hope, and a tireless effort to persevere all that it can. The voids can be seen as spaces where something has been removed, but they also allow space to grow. Nature will always be present, and once it is given the time and space for regrowth, it will find balance.
