Natural Disaster Destruction + Trauma

CONCEPT

The Destruction series body of work is meant to explore and question the human response to trauma. The trauma can be interpreted as both emotional and physical. The viewer is encouraged to decide which kind of trauma is being presented and how the one involved is effected. With the lack of human presence in all of the scenes, the viewer becomes the participant and the observer. The presence of human life is implied in all of the works while maintaining a sense of abandonment or displacement.

INSPIRATION

The inspiration from this series comes from being a Florida native and watching many people suffer from hurricane damage and the extreme will to rebuild and carry on.

Magazine, Space Gallery (Jacksonville, FL) , Studio @620 (St. Petersburg, FL) , Jacksonville Main Library (FL) , American Red Cross North Florida , Jacksonville University (FL) , University of North Florida (FL) , A Vision For Art (Jacksonville, FL).
