Now, on the event of her 2023 exhibition, Rivering at Haw Modern in Kansas Metropolis, we wished to replace her interview with a number of pictures from her new work. The exhibition work mirror a love affair with the Kansas River, knowledgeable by science and historical past and private explorations executed by kayak, airplane and path, leading to an beautiful assortment of oil and acrylic work. Additionally included within the present are painted, laser-cut wooden panels created from LiDAR map imagery elegantly revealing the river’s historic pathways.

   The artist writes:  “This exhibition consists of not solely modern views of the Kaw but additionally work that imagines the traditional and evolving Kansas River Valley. These embody imagery of floodplain scrolls—scars left behind from previous river channels—the ancestral Kaw Lake, and the proof of historical life alongside the Kaw.”

   “The oil work are primarily views of the river from above, utilizing footage I’ve taken from a small aircraft flying at 500-1000 ft overhead or drone footage as much as 400 ft in altitude. These work proceed my exploration of the ceaseless windings of sand and water over time, the ever-evolving channels unfurling throughout the riverbed. In them, I marvel at how the river gives up such dynamic and naturally pleasing compositions.”
