Artist Statement Submitted 2018

“Balancing Act” is the title of a recent solo exhibit which contains an equal amount of abstract and figurative works that are unified by material and process. Within each work the struggle to maintain balance is evident in the many layers and subtle shifts of shape, line, and texture. Vintage ledger papers, forms, receipts, and accounting sheets are filled with hand written accounts of people, prescriptions, money, household budgets, inventory, mortgages, savings accounts, bills, and other financial records. The material is shredded, cut, painted and drawn over to cobble together a unique collage process that expresses the delicate balance of history, time, and purpose.
