Drawing/Mixed Media

Artist's Statement

In my current body of work, I continue to explore how layers affect our perception as we view the world through our mental layers (experiences).
I merge classical traditions- pencil drawing- and new technologies -laser printing, LED lighting. I draw familiar images and add conceptual references. I scan and laser print them on polycarbonate and illuminate them with LED light. I play with light and shadow. As light is projected onto the image, the shadow on the wall changes the perception of the image.
