The 2008 collection is
Lands. We humans are creatures of the land. Despite our
fascination with mastering the sea and air, anthropologically, we are
built for walking vast distances across the land, traversing continents
and land bridges in our aspiration for discovering new habitats.
Maybe our most
profound inspiration occurs in preparing for these journeys and starting
off in a never-before attempted quest...to leave familiar sites for the
promise of something we hope to be better, journeying new landscapes,
traversing the water's edge, leaving the certainty of the ground for
what we hope may be a better destination. Yet throughout any
journey, I think that the reflection of the explorer reconciles, in
their spirit, what they have known at the beginning, with all the new
discoveries they are presented with on their journey. The explorer
evolves with the changing landscape.
Lands, then is
my attempt to explore the explorer's discovery of the changes within, as
he/she deals with the changing landscape of their journey.
