Artist Statement

My interests lie in the iterative nature of time and existence: the accretion of moment upon moment, memory upon memory, thread upon thread. When a series of similar actions accrete they construct more complex patterns.  My engagement in the act of accretion is an opportunity to connect with and consider the ideas and activities that underlie and construct our complex realities.

My favorite tool is a simple floor loom. The loom provides for a specific quality of exploration: the intersection of the horizontal and the vertical.  It is a grid where interactions take place between the spiritual and the material, the seen and unseen.

The Line Drawing: Ode to Agnes series is based on the grid structures of Agnes Martin’s ‘On a Clear Day’ series of prints (1973).  Martin dedicated her practice to the exploration of these essential grids. Like her, I find that a simple structure or logarithm generates infinite possibilities.
