I put physical objects to abstract use in visual poems.

Making work that appears disposable counters the modern, wasteful paradigm to build in obsolescence.

Disposable bags, bottles, and other refuse -- modern artifacts -- partially shed their identity as containers as I collapse, inflate, stretch, fold, weave and assemble them to function as points, lines and volumes of narrative object drawings or paintings held together by the transitory (site position and light).

Drawing crosses into sculpture. The language of the material, its physical volume, and what isor is not contained must be accommodated or countermanded.

The thinner than expected demarcation between permanence and transience has focused mywork on gesture. Recent exploration engages with making physical doodles -- gestures -- from scavenged objects.
