Statement

Stillwater 10 Video Still

“My deepest insights are rooted in personal, ordinary experiences. Catching a glimpse of a raven’s feet tucked beneath him as he swoops overhead reminds me of the fleeting nature of circumstance and beauty.

While lying on the ground under a canopy of gum trees observing insects at work, my thoughts wander to the infinite and the whole.

Noticing hesitation in a young Marine’s voice when I question him about being deployed to Afghanistan, forces me to not avert my eyes in the face of human frailty and contradiction.

When I pay attention to the quiet evidence that links me symbiotically with humanity and the natural world, I come face to face with a profound sense of the mystery of the universe. 

Every thing I make is an attempt to reveal a tiny grain of this truth.”
