statement

Exploring memories through fragments of ideas that are collected and assembled, the reality of my history becomes a new translation that is simplified and whimsical.

Cut paper lends a quiet fragility to my work. Layering and overlapping creates shadows that echo the original, producing a repetition of angle, shape and value onto nearby surfaces. It is this play with lighting and shadow that I explore, using a simple medium of cut paper to manipulate texture and form through cutting and sculpting. Cast shadows are distorted and re-distributed, becoming re-imagined, just as memories become fragmented and rewritten as time stretches on.
