My artwork investigates the process of structural degradation and uses the construct of architecture to question our perceptions of memory and our concept of place. I draw inspiration from degraded and weatherworn buildings and their ornamentation: aged stone and terra cotta facades, fractured adornment and other architectural components left to the elements. I attempt to capture the enigmatic beauty and the unperceived intricacy of this ongoing process of deterioration. My work presents narratives of the impermanence of memory, and by creating a connection with man-made structures I hope to reveal correlations between architecture and our recollections.
