Image Statement: "Excavation" is a piece that evolved during the early days of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Although I began the work abstractly without intent of the outcome, once it was completed, it was clear that the the daily images of bombed our villages coming out of Ukraine had been guiding this work.
