Portrait of a Hermit, 2018 
Sculpture/site specific installation
Ancient rocks, tree, goldleaf, charcoal
Dimensions variable  
2018



Conceived during a stay at the ASTRA residency in an ancient hermitage on a sacred mountain in Spoleto, Italy. The portrait was inspired by ways of those that were there before us and that which will remain after we are gone. Using materials derived from nature to isolate and frame elements one within the other to bring focus on states of exile and connectivity. Nature is a work of art and a network of technology, to observe it is to learn how to coexist in a complex network of systems.
