Artist Statement

Lay of the Land is a series of inlays illustrating South Florida's expansive and distinctive ecosystem from a bird's eye point of view.  The installations are inspired from the constantly changing pattern and structure of the sawgrass prairies, braided wetlands, and coastal estuaries.  The inlays are welcome mats of contours, silhouettes and imprints. Each inlay motif relates to some aspect of the expansive flow of water as it permeates the mosaic of ponds, sloughs, marshes, coral reefs and estuaries. Six motifs are repeated in the 22 vestibule entries with color variations reflecting the airport's way-finding palette. The 4"x4" staggering field tiles frame the center 1"x1" mosaic tile designs with various shades and colors in keeping with the Florida Waterways."
