close encounters

Close Encounters is an installation made up of thousands of images created in an array of media, color, and technique, of the popular landmark, Devils Tower, in Wyoming, The sheer numbers speak to the obsessive quality of human nature, from the number of times the tower has been reproduced, to the many references to it throughout history. It plays off of both ritual and prayer, a repeated gesture meant to invoke spiritual practice and meditation. It was exhibited at the Art Gym Denver in 2019, and at the Telluride Arts Foundation 81435 Gallery in Colorado, also 2019.
