Artist Statement

In my COLLAGE FORMATIONS, dualities (nature/culture, organic/inorganic, abstraction/representation) break down. The way in is through abstraction, in spite of their photographic veracity.

My handmade unique books are comprised of marginalia.  I cut the margins of magazine pages, of ephemera, up to the edge of text, or the edge of a rule line.  Fragments of text are cut, fragmented, illegigle and compressed -as if mumbled, or pre-language. The edge becomes central.
