My practice focuses on the concept of individual through acknowledging the diversities amongst people. Perhaps it is a process of one discovering them internally by reviewing past and present external environments.
These romantic notions of internal resolution through a harmonic relationship with our environment have an established dialogue with art and literary history. I believe there is something to be learned from the works of the Romanticists, Henry Thoreau and Caspar David Fredrich for their examination of the relationship between the individual and nature.
