I am interested in the phenomenon of facilitating work to occur. Through the use of mixed media and repurposed collage my work explores an “other”, undefined space that exists between our familiarity: a maze of self-similar patterns, underlying deviations, systems of recursion, objects in transition. The work becomes a glimpse, a trace, an archive.
