Artist Statement
My work is involved with noticing the subtle, and an ongoing questioning of what is and isn't essential. Seeking elemental solutions, I've reduced my "palette" to very simple forms, and an economy of materials. Beginning with formal concerns, the work is developed through a curiosity about processes. The Materia series (graphite drawings on paper) represent a further step in the reductive path I've been on. There is a directness and simplicity in using only graphite I find very satisfying. Unknown, but familiar, these kinetic,photograph - like images allow the invisible to become visible.
