Artist Statement

My cityscapes, distilled from my urban environs, begin as thumbnails in a notebook, either remembered or photographed, altered or fabricated. Sifting through these suggestions, I choose which to develop into finished work. A works on paper artist, my studio practice encompasses prints (aquatints, monotypes and linoleum cuts) and drawings (an amalgam of cut paper, including repurposed prints, and a variety of drawing media). 

 

While exploring the boundaries between representation and abstraction, I invent a nominal architecture evoking a spare, unpeopled world of daunting structures. Form and content engage in dialogue becoming each other’s referent, but the conversation ends in discomforting stillness. Images entice using strong composition combined with subtle color, tonality and texture, but their buildings and walls offering no ingress or egress, instead exude alienation, isolation and loneliness.
