As related to climate change, adaptation has been defined as “any adjustment in natural or human systems in response to a changing or changed climate.” Inspired by locations around the world where the effects of climate change have already begun to take their toll, the artist adjusts her, historically, more subtle approach to communication with the viewer, in favor of a more direct one. Technically, placement and quality of drawn lines woven into broader landscapes, orchestrate movement-a road map of sorts, conveying a sense of both urgency and intention along side the inherently natural serenity. In the more abstract pieces, color, movement and depth craft this same intention in a complimentary manner. Emphasizing the use of the palette knife, light takes on dual meanings-physical and spiritual encouraging not simply the action of self reflection, but its life long process. Aspirations of growth towards the heavens, strength and wisdom imbued, weather storms and the passage of time. All the while, ever-present distorted reflections linger, flirting with darkness- inevitable and inescapable judgement. Majestic landscapes persevere beneath ominous skies, inspirational scenes outshine darker forces, magnified investigations of natural elements, lichen for instance, expose themselves for what they are-beautiful organic structures doubling as air pollution indicators, aiding us in seeing the err of our ways before its too late. Emotionally, this body of work is deeply influenced by the artist’s own adaptive measures, stemming from her feelings of terror and despair, around climate change.
