STromatolite DRIFT

These works originate from miniature paintings in watercolor and mineral pigments derived from the earth. The pigments are applied to non-absorbent paper, which records the natural processes of the paint as it dries. These captured processes of pooling, evaporation, layering and sedimentation present a microcosm of the processes that shape landscapes. These miniatures are then enlarged via digital manipulation, and re-composed as reflected landscapes whose symmetry recalls the body. These landscapes locate the intimate within the immense, evoking both macro-cosmic and mineral origins of biology.
