STATEMENT OF WORK
For a few years, I’ve noticed and saved the border remnants from my children’s sticker books. The flat shapes alluded to their once full interiors—smiling fruit, goofy dinosaurs, winking popcorn—but also transformed into abstracted fields of positive and negative shapes. Relationships between these shapes were set and I began to challenge the static nature of the fixed space by playing with their scale and orientation. This suite of paintings sprung forth from a place of making due—finding beauty and purpose in a world that was left behind.
