Regarding this body of ‘paperwork’ –
My work is organic motifs drawn on paper, cut by hand, and revisited and reassembled through collage. The repetition of gesture is very meditative during the production process. Repetition is utilized in order for me to exercise internal confusion.
Currently I am dissecting emotions and memories of being raised in an abusive familial environment. I find the subject matter of those feelings most urgent and necessary in order for personal growth. Collage and cutting paper have always been a reflex for me, as far as material and mediums go, and are most immediate forms of gratification aesthetically.
