This exhibition at Washington and lee University is a continuation of his Biological Regionalism Series which attempts to reestablish a connection to local landscapes and wildlife by documenting fish species found in bodies of water near the exhibition venue. In this exhibition the work investigated the threatened population of native brook trout and their fragile environment.

“Biological Regionalism” is a series of paintings and videos that identifies the landscape and the fish that are distinctive to a region. I envision the project creating indigenous symbols of a culture.
