statement

I enjoy color and texture with oils & collage, abstracting through familiar icons. Glued papers offer visual suggestions of color, shape, texture or line element to influence the composition. I enjoy the interruptions of text or image and how they contribute to the greater rhythm of the paintings.

 

The bed boxes explore ideas of enclosure and privacy. I like using resin and concrete because they are versatile and allow experimentation. As a building material, concrete can connote the impersonal while also speaking to comfort, stability and permanence. Resin gives delicate items protection.

 

The stereo photos help me share enclosure ideas.
