My work is a search for and a vehicle for conveying meaning. Composition and materials are a journey into self and out into the world.
Watercolor monoprints made on a flat bed press embed and absorb the colors into the paper creating a local and emotional content. A series of variations on a theme is made by using the ghost image on a previous plate as a starting point for the next print. Collages unify disparate experiences spanning time and space. Multiple canvases can be a filmstrip. Pieces in a jigsaw puzzle with varying arrangements, invite observers’ participation. Stones glued into the skin of a sculpture are a dynamic surface. Wood planks can be carved to create prints and used as part of a sculpture. Photographs submerged into a drawing, print or painting are a background of events. Dynamic composition can establish in the viewers perspective. Line defines space inside out and suggests movement or stillness. Subject matter is the recycling of experience.
