Circuits of time
In 2022 I was selected to be part of the ARTservency program through Port Washington's Gallery 224 and the Ozaukee Washington County Land trust. Over the course of a year I was been able to devote myself to studying Milwaukee’s Lake Park. In 2015 I moved from rural Wisconsin to Milwaukee for college and have found solace in Lake Park since then. This urban park is a special getaway, making it seem like you’re deep in the woods when you’re really in the thick of the city. The rich history of the park has been fascinating to learn about. While taking walks there I find myself thinking about the cycles of life that have existed in that place. The courses of nature that run constantly in loops go through all sorts of colors, feelings, and scents. Different types of humans have called this place home, from native people thousands of years ago, to Victorian era park goers, to the modern day person. Even the large concrete footbridge over Ravine Road has seen its own cycle of being built and rebuilt after years of use. My body of work focuses on these cycles.
