The process begins with a found object.
At the heart of every piece is the search for that tipping point just before a canvas becomes sculpture.
Each piece is forced to pause between its many layers;
sometimes hours, sometimes days, weeks, or months.
The shapes are rarely planned, nor the colors.
It is a process of attention to lines and textures,
a meditation on the form as it emerges.
Always present are thoughts what is left of lives and places,
testimonies to what was,
knowing that gravity will begin its work the moment the piece is done,
taking its long turn
in heavy silence.
