Artist Statement
The process is labor intensive, involving acrylic paint, paper and colored threads. Cut and layered, painted papers are assembled into form before being sewn together with colored thread by sewing machine. Images are at once striking, oft familiar, story-like figures inviting archetypal translations of a shared yet arcane narrative.Words and stories collected from the everyday poetry of form and color, reassembled into imagery to evoke an original presence that lies just beyond the reach of the perceived environment. These collected fragments of the construction of memory, awareness and understanding reanimated in figurative lyricism.
