Mixed media on paper
18" x 24" framed
I am moved by the allure of the macabre. There is a delicate beauty within the dark layers of harsh corrosion in my work. Layers of decay and disintegration uncover hidden imagery that appears to have been lost and forgotten; rediscovered after such a long time. Each work has a story to tell—secrets to reveal. There is a strange timelessness, almost antiquated feeling to my work, which evokes a haunting sense of loneliness.
Painting, sculpture, and mixed media are the standard forms in which I work. Many of my works include a combination of painting, drawing and a variety of found objects that had been discarded, repurposed and re-imagined. I keep many collections akin to my work; aged dirty relics, lost or forgotten, slowly breaking down, or falling apart, finding new meaning and purpose within the compositions I create.
