Artist's statement :
My work has always dealt with a relationship and our interconnection with the natural world. I have travelled specifically to visit and document environmentally threatened places. The Selva veil series resulted from visiting the threatened jungle of South America. I literally veiled as a ghosted site the soon to be demolished area and created this work as a memory veil.
