Artist Statement

Wallconstructions, image 1-6 

My wallconstructions are site-specific. I use the wall and floor as the backdrop for my installations of multiple, small white objects, volumes and lines made from wood, putty, and chalk. These minimalist reliefs create barely visible lines and surfaces that bridge the disciplines of drawing and sculpture.
