Artist Statement

 

My works on canvas and paper investigate themes of time, language and memory using ephemeral materials (vintage sheet music, prayer books, dictionaries) that are becoming extinct in our digital age.  I am inspired by the inherent poetic beauty of these discarded objects and their potential to become transformed through the decollage process.   I am particularly drawn to papers that contain fragmented remains of text and recognizable imagery.  In the artwork, the text and imagery of the source material becomes altered during the creative process so that new and unexpected combinations of form and context emerge.
