My work consists primarily of cut/panel pieces in wood, installations, murals, works on paper and photography. The imagery alludes to architectural spaces, without literally depicting them, creating lines that simultaneously obscure and dissolve connections to the world while maintaining a link to physical realities of ornament, texture and most importantly a viewer’s changing position.
Around the city, layered accumulation of surfaces, paint, graffiti, scrapes, marks, and stains create vivid, unexpected formal relationships that reveal the history of their making and are an important source for my work. Transposing the process that formed these chance discoveries is a mapping activity within individual works as well as across the cut plywood panels, works on paper, and installations. Often, as in cartography, distortions, elaborations, and vandalism are coaxed into the work recording my dialogue inside the making.
