Artist's Statement

My recent works are a break from the painterly images I have made in the past few years. In a search for something more deliberate I changed my working method and style. Using crosshatching, a technique usually reserved for rendering form and depth I have flattened the image to show space in a more topographical experience. The hatch marks are made on a matte gradiated background which focuses the viewer on the duality of surface and color. These works are a meditation on labor and time: of coming together and the borders that separate us. The marks are not only creating an aesthetic pattern they are literally the marking of time, and the work that has gone into the piece.
