Alt-Scape (2016-2018), is a series of paintings and prints that explore tangential narratives of alternative landscapes relating to the disruption of the natural environment. These works symbolically represent nature in a reflexive state, as an unnatural, lack-luster substitute for its aboriginal form and existing as a displaced environmental artifact. This series also reflects my interest in the landscape genre as a culturally entrenched tradition of creating forms of idealized nature and a quest to reconcile perception and actuality of the relationship between culture and nature.
