Abstract

My work is an investigation of illegal dumpsites located in the Blue Ridge area. This body of work serves as a timeline of the impact on the local landscape. Using photography, printmaking, and sculpture, I explore the environmental impact of the dumpsites, the accumulations of trash it creates, and the reclamation by nature. I seek to bring the global concern of trash into a local perspective.
