In my Concentricretions series, material is transformed through process, amalgamation, and color in geodic, wall-mounted sculptures. Inspiration for this piece came from the Grand Prismatic Spring in Yellowstone. I rendered the rich aesthetics of this surreal geothermal attraction into a wall-mounted sculptural installation that provides optical contrast through color and material exploration. The multiple works hint at the myriad variations in the spring’s appearance, as well as reference other geologic formations including concretions, stromatolites, and geodes.
