In formal terms, my current work is an exploration of how form is
determined by, and conversely determines, space. My work references
the figure, though more recently it has explored similar figure/space
relationships utilizing basic geometric shapes. I am interested in the
tension that exists between a form -- such as human legs or cylinders
and the space which it both occupies and is contained by. My
long history with mixed media and photography has driven my most
current work, as I have returned to such traditional materials as paper,
fabric, photographed images, and fabricated artifacts to produce works
that focus on the process of creating surreal characters/creatures.
