This piece is one of the artist’s “recycled works,” part of an ongoing body of work created when the artist deconstructs and transforms previous artwork. In this particular piece, various mixed-media and painted works on paper have been reduced to fragments, which have then been rearranged and re-created as newly transformed artworks. The technique used in this piece is similar to that of mosaic, where smaller individual pieces are cut and fit together into a larger pattern or composition. The space between pieces reveals the ground on which the fragments are adhered, a prepared wood panel, but is also much more. This space between fragments becomes an integral part of the piece, as it records the meeting of past and present, and transmits an ongoing narrative of artistic, and ultimately personal, evolution and growth. This artistic “recycling” process is open-ended and has been underway for over twenty years, and results in a variety of sculptural and three-dimensional installation works, in addition to two dimensional works. But all works in this series are interconnected and interrelated, and share history and meaning. The forms, colors, and textures that comprise any individual piece evolve through the transformation of earlier work. This process, and the evolving history of the raw material used to produce the work, confer upon these works conceptual significance beyond their immediate visual characteristics, and engage viewers in the process itself. This piece is made from paper glued to 1/4" plywood. The freeform shaped plywood is mounted on 3/4" spacers so that the piece floats on the wall when hung. The piece is ready to hang, and is made with archival materials.

I work in a variety of media – drawing, painting, and sculpture, as well as installation and site specific works. While I have roots in the fine art tradition, my work is influenced and inspired by a wide range of everyday and vernacular art-making traditions. In my artistic practice I incorporate a variety of techniques and interests, in part as part of a broader goal of finding connections across varied aesthetic perspectives. Through art, my goal is to engage with others, from all walks of life and varied perspectives, and together explore shared visionary spaces. One aspect of my practice is that I like to work with found and recycled materials, particularly in my sculpture and site-specific work – it helps me connect to the world around me, to see it and feel it more directly. My two dimensional work also regularly uses found materials, as well as an underlying process of recycling. (In those works, in addition to found imagery and materials, the raw material is often my previous unsold artwork, or miscellaneous studio remnants). Recent paintings likewise incorporate a process of finding: marks, forms, and gestures are cultivated for discovery and revelation, and mined from an ever-growing stockpile of visual culture. An ephemeral spirit of exploration and discovery explores through this process new lands, experiences, and insights.
