Six Feet - Admired From a Distance

Just as the city was starting to unfold and come to life, shedding its winter weight, we were forced indoors. I was personally struggling to catch my breath after a heavy case of seasonal depression only to feel the relief I had been hoping for was no longer promised to me and in fact was put on display only to be admired from a distance.
- reflection on 2020 for Six Feet

Much of the imagery I created throughout the last year has yet to surface here. My backlog is typically quite delayed as part of my process is to spend an undefined period of time with my images to explore their ultimate executions. The year 2020 felt different as so much of what I was making was in direct response to forced solitude amidst a global pandemic. Engulfed by uncertainty and fear I channeled my anxiety into my work in hopes to help further clarify my thoughts and feelings. 

I have a handful of ongoing projects at this point that I am still finding a balance with. You can expect a few printed works to release this year as well as a much needed website update. 

Wishing you all health and happiness in your journeys.
