I am fascinated by the paradoxical activity of dissolving physicality and giving 


form to the ephemeral. Much of the focus of these abstract collages is the 


changing light in a garden, and the development of our perception as fluid beings 


in a seemingly solid form. I view the pieces as vibratory portraits of our internal


world, with its activity, free or contained. The images define the interplay of 


material, emotions, and spirit, with its implications of motivation, true intent and 


being carried away.


     I am attracted to the shimmer and variety of color in our refuse, which is an 


abundant material, a sort of urban plankton. It reflects the changes in our daily 


needs and tastes. My collages use forms and colors found from these discards 


of our ‘to go’ life, all of it commercial packaging  produced to spark desire and 


protect from harm. Shapes are cut from foil and colorful plastic bags 


using deconstructed boxes as patterns. The pieces are assembled symmetrically 


on acetate, paper, or without a ground, directly on the wall, bringing them more 


into our space. With an intuitive approach I combine the colors looking for a 


fragile, fleeting quality, contemplative and unmonumental. Shine, reflection, 


shadow, layering and veiling give flatness and depth. More sculpture than


illusion, these pieces change with light and our  perspective. There is suggestion 


of architectural blueprints, mineral growth, refracted light, or mandalas for 


meditative practice. Fluidity in a square, I want these pieces to intrude curiously on 


our quotidian mundane world.
