Without Words is a visceral and subconscious way back to my sense of self.
Unable to articulate my personal struggle, these images bring visibility to my feelings of vulnerability, fear, and truth. These moments manifest from my psyche, disembodied from my day to day existence. The spark for the series came from an illuminating moment in Savannah when I found myself standing alone in the humid night air. I walked to the railing of the deck and look over to see my body face down in the pool below. I didn’t know it then, but the intangible experience of that moment would follow me through the next few years.
Examining my darker sense of self has been cathartic. This is a series of moments that reflect my lost voice during a time of personal crisis.
Nature, in its complexity, its sense of survival and inherent beauty helped me ground myself back into my body. When I dug into the earth, felt the sea and the wind, connected to nature, I found my way back home.
