ARTIST STATEMENT:

Nothing remains the same over time. Transitions are the edges between different states of being, much as geologic strata delineate different eras. My Strata Series explores the transition idea as layers representing evolving states of being. As the viewer descends through the layers, the rectilinear shapes represent transitions as edges between the states. The viewer is invited to explore the nature of these and other transitions—how they occur over time (sudden or gradual) and what kinds of forces cause the change.
