These works were made after events that wore down spirits and materials. Like the passage of time itself, natural disasters remind us of our vulnerability and the inevitability of loss. In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, the Gatlinburg Fires, various other storms, I collected wooden debris: two-by-fours, strips of molding and trim, bits and pieces of boards, kitchen cabinets, dressers. These remnants remind us of place and time—home and neighborhood, before and after.
