Our daily lives are made up of a variety of things, such as flowing rivers, lush grass, and the changing of the seasons. They are pieces of the story of my life, and at the same time, pieces of other people's stories. They are also fragments of the grand story of life that has been accumulated since before we were born.
I have traced these fragments with lines through plastic plates and sketches. These lines preserve my own images of the transitions of life, which are essentially formless, and of the passing of time by tracing the flow that once existed there.
The ever-flowing river, the growth and decay of large trees, and the way the rain pours down and soaks into the earth are not far from the passage of time as we experience it, and they will continue to flow day by day, moment by moment.
