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 painting method and style. It is an abstraction using crosshatching, a technique usually reserved for rendering form and depth I have created an abstract flat image more akin to topography verging on minimalism. The linear 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 art, and the work that has gone into the piece.

Domestic textiles are imbued with the spirit of my imagined foremothers - emblazoned with positive affirmations – as if the spirit of the maker comes to life and offers solace and support. Carole is the caretaker of these thrifted and found objects and the messenger from which their stories flow.
