Contemplating the enormity of time fills me with awe. The vastness of the millennia is beyond our frame of reference. What existed in the world through the eons? What countless generations of life have come into being? Discovering a clue – such as an ancient fossil – is a source of wonder. This feeling drives my art practice.
