Statement: Using household materials and small scale models I am trying to make visible the image of Colorado’s Front Range that I have constructed in my head since leaving there as a younger man.
Perhaps the best way I can describe this is by metaphor:
When absent from a place, whether because I have left or because I have yet to go, I find myself building a scaffold around the incomplete image in my head. From there I can start to fill in the cracks and missing pieces with memory or expectation. The patches are often incongruent and eventually the original structure is obscured by this awkward surface that serves more as a mask than a support.
