Artist's statement

Full Artist's statement


My work is about nature and the nature of our (human) perception. Specifcally how we see, how our brains connect marks, in my case holes in a page, and come up with visual representations of the world around us. I am also interested in our capacity to layer information and make connections of disparate images or ideas. Another interest is the intersection between abstraction and realism, where the division is and is it the same for all viewers. With my recent work I am exploring larger format cut paper works. This requires the layering of cut panels. I create larger pieces by overlapping side to side and up and down.
