Artist Statement



Most decisions are made that are true for the moment.

With that in mind, you could say that I am making this work out of a series of choices that are arbitrary, but absolutely logical (true)  in context .

Constructing my 2d work relates to a sculptural process. That is, of layering (paper)information to build a ground., Next covering over with ink and brush, and then with what fragments remain, making connections and sense between parts; building a story from the facts of what's there with drawing. For me, drawing relates to sculpture in terms of line and of building a structure.

There is a relationship to gardens, to plans and to maps, I'm interested in the order, structures and patterns that occur in nature.

I am curious as to what makes things beautiful, is it order, or order with a bit of randomness? My work explores order in relation to random-ness. Where does one end and the other begin?
