Artist Statement

Sculptural drawing based installations extend drawing from the paper and wall to physical and virtual space.

Looking at loss and retention of identity through translation, transition and transformation, I draw forms (with scissors or through other manipulation) from something recognizable that carries its own history and activate these forms anew in sculptural drawing-based installations in different physical spaces.  I capture and translate these installations as photographic images that can stand alone as images and are also cycled into fresh installation.

The manifestations of the forms evolve through recombination and interaction with new physical environments -- a non-linear narrative, an ongoing dialogue.  Perceptions shift between "drawings" "sculptures" and between "representation" and material "object.
