Artist Statement

These works are a continuation of the work that I produced for my July 2017 exhibition, Over and Over. Once again I have incorporated shaped works with layers of extruded imagery. Each work, including the drawings, started with grid based beginnings that I slowly shifted or changed allowing the work to end as something else but yet cognizant of where they started. There are small bits, revealed, of the burned patterns that are the underbelly of these pieces.

As a former textile artist I inherently incorporate "woven" surfaces that invite the viewer in to explore the construction of the work. They often read as landscapes or aerial views and reference topographical maps. They speak about time, process, and the textiles that became the common thread in my childhood.
