My work considers primal experiences that transcend time and place, the common threads of our existence- what is instinctively done for self-preservation. Repetition plays an important role.
Recent work draws especially on the process of building and uncovering protective layers. Intuitive choices to conceal or expose our vulnerable selves reveal our primal natures, stripping away our intellectual selves.
Materials of hammered metal, cast glass, steel wire, stained paper, ink, deteriorated mesh and recycled billboard paper are methodically manipulated - a meditative, ritualistic process. Most works focus on the space beyond the line, defining the opening and liminal spaces, and are at once intuitive, deliberate, spontaneous, and fluid.
