My work explores the juxtaposition of simplicity and complexity, inspired by the contrasts I find in my environment, where organic textures appear within the manufactured lines of the city.
While my work is not representational, the process of creating a piece - and a series - is a way of relating to a complex and chaotic world. Revising and perfecting lines brings an amount of order; their starkness on a textured paper, a bit of clarity. Amorphous shapes emerge, resisting that order. Patterns appear, then disintegrate. Just as weeds grow in sidewalk cracks, the lines of a maze are only temporary boundaries.
This interplay between simplicity and complexity, order and chaos, stillness and activity, can be found both within each piece, and in the relationship of the pieces to each other.
