Artist Statement

My installation projects begin with hundreds of restless drawings – inks, watercolors, encaustics; oils on paper; traces and rubbings; digital prints – and an investigation of how discrete still, permanent images can account for the messy passage of time and the unending transformation of matter.

I explore a vibrant interplay between open-ended drawing processes, the palpable sculptural nature of materials and the painted and drawn image. The installations dissolve the single viewpoint of one-point perspective and posit a kaleidoscopic array of shifting pictures that create multiple points of view.

I am fascinated by change through time as well as space: a dialectic between the exquisite experience of being present and the inevitable cessation of this present -- a playful notation of both our subjective experience and natural processes -- all that is incessantly moving, shifting, and evolving.
