Sprawlmixed media on canvas, 40 x 40 in.

Humans have completely reworked the surface of the earth. Expansive plains of concrete offer foundation to towering structures of concrete, glass, wood and steel. Roads slice through mountainsides, or tunnel through subterranean rock, creating networks of highways and intricate grids in our urban centers. Here, Home, Us considers the implications of our cities' rigid geometric arrangements, explores ideas of urbanization, and allows the structures to create narratives. The works serve as documents in my search to understand and examine our increasingly urbanized and industrialized culture's impact on ourselves and our environment.
