Abstract
Discerning Lines of Demarcation is an investigation into the accumulated landscape of distressing times. Situations of mass destruction, loss of family, substance abuse, domestic violence, loss of friendship, and uncertain health have all been encountered within a steady progression in the last five to six years of my life. The digestion of these situations has been slow as the events overlap and intertwine each other. I have tweezed and distilled these circumstances. This is described through different types of terrains that create physical boundaries to represent psychological fears or events. Tied to Your Hate; How Much More Will Fall, Untitled, Loss Can Ruin but Growth Can Be Found, and Precarious Footing are all pieces that reach for a greater understanding of many trying events.

The work uses the format of installation as the vehicle in which to articulate the landscapes or yards. This format allows the viewer to be inside the workings of the various pieces.
