Images of towers began seeping into my work as drawings. They showed up casually at first then with a kind of urgency. When they amassed into a large group of prints and drawings, I felt compelled to build them in the landscape.
The towers I’m interested in are not modern telecommunication towers or urban skyscrapers. They are raw and primal and built by hand. They are scrapped together by a need to piece a puzzle. They are guard towers, hunting towers. In their silence they are benevolent and malevolent surveillance towers - metaphors that allude to internment camps or lifeguard towers.
