Artist Statement

 

 

These works on paper are about the way visual diagrams present information that describes how something is made or the way it is.  I am interested in drawing and collaging multiple layers of information that refer abstractly to maps, architectural drawings and blueprints, patterns or the structure of roller coasters and fences.

 

I use gouache and collaged paper in a series of layers that are a visual and ideological response to the previous layer to define my pictorial space.  For each piece I create a set of rules to follow about the use of a limited palette, a grid format, opacity of paper and whether a piece my include curving lines or maintain a rectilinear structure.
