This work is part of a larger ongoing dialogue exploring density and structure. Working with fire and paper, the thousands of individual residual marks draw as much attention to absence, as to what is present. Employing the simple gesture of burning holes through the surface of the picture plane challenges the physical integrity of the paper, and heightens the tension and awareness of the delicate edge between form and emptiness. Making the fragile more fragile, and evident, the accumulative impact small subtle incremental change may have on the whole.
