foreseeable cache


Twenty years into my marriage there was an irreparable fracture that prompted me to ask the big existential questions. It took me on a devoted path of personal development and spiritual growth. I began a dedicated meditation practice and found myself seeking refuge in nature. Inner peace and wisdom came with silence, and an awakening heart and mind. Years later, I was drawn to the ancient expansive landscapes of the American West. Foreseeable Cache represents a collective memory of all who have passed through these lands. It is an immersive exploration of how my physical being is transcended by these sacred places and represents what meditation feels like to me. 


Translucent veils symbolize the chattering mind and external noises, with additional shifting into and out of mindfulness. Surreal and artificially colored, this work blurs the lines between reality and perception. Intuitively guided, the dual imagery of in-camera double exposures are a metaphor for the internal and external landscapes. These abstracted images conjure an alternate reality, merging the physical and spiritual realms.
