Artist Statement

I am investigating the role of gestures, movement and gravity in building of a form. Chance, accidents and randomness are given room to act within a structured system or choreographed event. Fragility, deformation, collapsing and rebuilding are recurring themes.

Image 4-6, is of a piece made for a show at a New York public Library. The wood carving was inspired by cuneiform writing while the print made from it resembles computer generated coding. plaster casts are placed as 'books' on the wood carving and print that serves as 'shelf'.
