Democratized Ecosystems: With the advent of modernity, the balance of nature has been disrupted by the lightning speed at which human engineered technologies have ignited. I build an iconography from science, architecture, industry, language, religious text with environmental relevance, and borrowed imagery from the urban and rural landscapes in which I have lived and traveled. Sourcing my Jewish/Christian/French/Armenian/USA multi-cultural background and trans disciplinary experiences, I layer symbolic narrative threads and seemingly disparate ideas in this body of work. I aim to plant new seeds of thought, grow awareness and cultivate conversation about biodiversity and cultural diversity that impact the global community today and into the future.
