About This Work

Synthetic Polymer, Flashe, Enamel, Embroidered Thread on Silk Organza over Wood with recessed painted Wood Structures. My paintings and wall sculptures explore the nature and fragility of the superficial layer.Using silk organza as my canvas, the paintings present the surface for what it is, a dubious facade wrought with hidden elements.The sculptural work removes the silk canvas from the stretcher bars and places it in the context of experiential space. Each work reveals its infrastructure, conceding how it was made. I am interested in how space is inhabited and choose materials that facilitate this.Silk enables me to experiment spatially while using it symbolically as a facade-like structure.It is deceptively strong, holds shape and pigment, yet allows for shadow and light to play a role in the work. The process of making is intentionally slowed by stitching thread into the silk canvas, thereby penetrating the work’s surface and the hidden layers behind.Constructed geometric shapes are incorporated into the paintings offsetting the delicate with the bold, the ethereal with the solid. In the studio, I explore shapes and invent forms that combine random patterns found in nature with the human inclination for order and symmetry.With each piece, I investigate the reliance on surface appearances while exploring what lies beyond, continually playing with the elements that constitute painting.
