Artist Statement

Art is about relationships and a sort of curiousness that taps into the nature of the materials used, it is about collecting and asking why, a wondering about the past, the current and future, an excavation of memory and forgetting, permanence and loss, the expression of vaporous ideas realized thru the act of making an image permanent in paint or mending to make whole. Thru these acts and the prism of time without nostalgia or sentiment, hindsight can be 20 /20, although, shifting. Artmaking is a search for the authentic, a blending of reality over time. Whether recreating the photo image in paint or mending the fiber into a sturdy whole it is the doing, that is, the artmaking experience that uncovers the memory and shifts the meaning to another phase. To preserve then let go and give to the future, a future that no doubt will have another reality.
