Artist Statement

These works are a continuation of the “Disorderly Hedgerow” series which is inspired by the environmental concept that the more unorganized, over-grown, and rambling “nature” appears, the more possible life it can sustain.  The hedgerow, an urban equivalent to a forest, is a compact vertical trellis for mammals, reptiles, and birds to live and shelter from sight.  Likewise, my drawings are constructed with a set of methods and chance processes to engage the push and pull of negative and positive shapes to yield an “overgrowth” of patterns and possible readings. At times, the figures dissolve into the foliaged architecture of trunks and limbs; at other times, these figures emerge.

These works are made with dry pigments, Kremer matte dispersion acrylic binder, Speedball silkscreen inks, Golden silkscreen medium, Yarka and Kremer pan watercolors, and Caran D'ache water-soluble crayons.
