2021 Reading List (ongoing)

the artist is someone who consents to learn in public - Claire Pentecost

Here is an ongoing list of work that has inspired my research this year. I am focused on the ocean and near-shore coral habitats. Thinking about climate change; what it means, and how can I be a contributing player to creating a culture around the change that needs to happen to live in a post-carbon-neutral world. These are big and heavy questions, but it's a worthwhile pursuit to spend my energy on. I am thinking about material, experiences, and creating works beyond the canvas.
