My work is informed by the landscape of fragmentation. I start with chance marks and then continue with intentional drawing, repetition and a combination of materials. I piece together fragments, line, marks, image. It is a process – the connecting of disparate parts. It is like filling in an incomplete narrative. It is like mending a pot. As a visual artist who is also a poet, distillation is essential to me. A word in a poem, an image on paper can suggest an entire narrative. I work only on or with paper. It might seem fragile but it can be torn, bent, made wet and still, it survives…like us.
