New Work on Paper

My work is about time and its ticking. In the making of it, I slow up, trading slap-dash-snap real life for the color, the texture, the visceral pleasures of the materials.

On the belief that objects absorb the maker's energy and then give it off, I work layer by layer with deliberation so that the effect comes out on the other side in the completed piece.

Water and its properties figure in, sometimes realized as a wave, which is so transient it is illusory, the moment of it gone instantly. Or as reflection, or a drop like a stop-action time tick, or slews of drops accumulating.
