Early in the pandemic when people were sequestered we started to see that lessening our carbon footprint really did create positive changes in the environment. During this time I moved into a new studio which allowed me to think about how to express my ongoing concerns about climate change, and specifically rising sea levels, in a new way. There I was able to visualize what our world would look like completely underwater. By using food colored water and spotlights shining through various glass vessels and to “paint” with light onto the wall. These images represent the awesome beauty and frightening power of water.

 

This work is literally painted with light. My images are often described as painterly and certainly painting is a huge influence on my visual language. I am interested in people’s reactions when they find out my images are not paintings. I hope that leads them to question their presumptions around other things.
