Artist Statement

It is all within a question; moving outside of certainty and challenging borders. I want to create images free of stasis

I play with space and time, both in the action and in the process. Actions leave their paths, cast shadows, form visual poems. As I engage the meditative act of cutting, one can see the passage of time.

Improvisation drives me forward. Line as sculpture – shadow as drawing. I am interested in the immediacy of a mark being drawn out over a long period of time; stopping it for a moment, and letting it move someplace else. Since the work is physical, I can turn it over. I can look at all sides – expose them. There are questions that lead to more questions. Perhaps imagery asks questions in ways words cannot.

I am committed to both process and concept, and strive to discover how they coexist. The resulting work is skeletal, alien, organic, playful, emotional, nostalgic but present. I honor error, and struggle toward a balance between questions and answers.
