Artist Statement
My work examines the built environment. Street furniture - the essential and inconspicuous objects that litter our surroundings - is isolated and reconfigured. I create urban landscapes where background objects become primary pattern or maze. The pattern is playful and comic, irrational and diseased. I expose systems of the urban body and catalogue infrastructure. Graphite, ink, watercolor and gouache lightly mark sheets of paper; soft materials create an ephemeral work that exposes the fragility of the systems of our cultural landscape.
