I’m interested in people - alone and in groups, especially in public gathering places like fairs, parades, museums, transit stations, beaches, shopping malls. Initially, I’m attracted to the form of the figures, and the feelings a particular posture evokes or the way a group of people form an abstract organic shape as the edges of their bodies merge into one form. I’m interested in how individuals place themselves in groups, how they create solitude in multitude.
I think of my art practice as a collaboration between my creative impulses and the techniques I love so much. I don’t think I could express myself the way I want to without the intervention of the etched copper plate, or the digitally manipulated drawing. The process mirrors the content - it’s very much about what we choose to retain, what we let slip away, what we bury, how we build memories and construct narratives.
