Artist Statement

I record small rhythmic movements on paper. The time invested

results in an animated landscape. In the private act of drawing one

gesture leads to another. Choreography uses the mind, the body

and the grid. Writing uses the mind, the hand and the grid.

It was through this performative relationship that I began to translate

improvisational movement through line. An accumulation of

psychological traces slowly crawl across the surface creating it’s

own territory. Through the persistant meditation I am delineating

space on an intimate level. I wish to illustrate time through process.
