Artist Statement:
I work abstractly at the juncture where sculpture and painting intersect. The resulting pieces are hybrids. The process for my Shards series begins with recycled medical diagnostic film (X-Ray and MRI film) layered with acrylic monotype prints. The film is then torn apart and the shards are reconnected into new configurations using thousands of staples. The visual aesthetic is at once high-tech and primordial. As our information storage evolves, the materials are becoming artifacts of an earlier age. Medical images and paper documents are increasingly being recorded solely in the digital realm.

Striving for the elusive and the intangible, my work explores the boundaries between reality and that which is not yet known. It evokes a multitude of associations: aquatic life forms, otherworldly geological formations, surreal vegetation, scientific images of the minuscule, visions of the cosmos. I am interested in humanity's collective search for meaning in the absurdity that is this life, and in the pleasure to be found in the various manifestations of that search.
