"In late February of 2019 after a winter of heavy rain, I stumbled upon the unique ecological transition underway around Malibu Creek Canyon. Enchanted with the Santa Monicas and the unusual landscapes resulting from regrowth after the Woolsey fire, I returned with my camera throughout the late winter and spring. Over some time, a project came into focus, to find and frame the surreal compositions hidden in the surroundings; fresh greens against black, chaparral musically dividing beds of purple and mustard, freshly exposed earth pulled from erosion and the encroachment of new life. Much of my work has been informed by urban surroundings and in some sense its decay. This I later realized was related to that story but in reverse, of becoming. Knowing the area was experiencing a very ephemeral and special moment, my goal was to memorialize the beauty of the ecology in a way that was classical in spirit but formally more abstract, like the landscape itself, an interplay of order and noise.”
