Artist Statement
My work deals with the architecture, patterning and symbols of mythical and theoretical origins.  I use multicultural religiously based patterns and naturally occuring patterns to construct images of mythical and biblical creatures, subtle invisible phenomena, theoretical shapes of the universe, and microcosmic vibratory events.  The formal aspects of my work involve a play between the illusion of space, actual physical space, and the two-dimensionality of the paper.  In my cut-paper works I use perspectival patterning that creates the illusion of form, flat patterning, and a physical cast shadow to show the actual space and thinness of the paper. It is my aim to create spacially complex work that is in conversation with ancient, canonical, modernist, and contemporary ideas of spaciality in art making.
