From childhood, I have been acutely aware of construction and demolition sites, with their iconic language of color, form and energy. They convey tensions between old and new, presence and absence, solid and void. I take my imagery from these sites, using fragments of memory and current, fleeting impressions. I approach my work by deconstructing, fragmenting and abstracting, and then rebuilding by pulling iconic visual cues to the surface with the use of color, form, and texture. This non-representational process evokes gut recognition, and an ambiguous sense of place.
