An impression, a question, an idea, these are always my starting points. Working with words, the title of the piece emerges, modeling and drawing, and the form appears.
Intricate volumes, fine edges, dots, perfect curves, a hidden point of balance, all contribute to creating a moment of silence. The layers of mark-making provide a language, challenging the boundaries between surface and internal volume. Form is the signifier, language informs a story, both past, and yet to be played out.
The resulting work expresses my findings and raises new questions.
