About The Artist:
My love of paper and it’s suspicious delicacy developed alongside my love of the printed multiple. Manipulating screen prints and various papers led me down the path to the meditative practice of paper-cutting and paper sculpture. My recent works explore this medium and its connection to the third dimension. Surface texture, the playfulness of shadows and a simple color palette create a multi-layered conversation inside each of my paper creations. Imagining paper as a living creature, I allow the material to twist, bunch and breathe in a way that is most natural to itself- recognizing both the strength and delicacy in its fibers.With loose mental plans of each cut out and a #11 xacto knife, I welcome the spontaneous patterns that mimic a foreign, undiscovered world. Ephemeral in nature and material, my works allow for play on the subtlety of our everyday rituals and how quickly they evolve by our moment to moment decisions and meditations.
