My recent body of work focused on air, shadow, light and space.  Over time it has become more abstract and is now also very process oriented. While I still maintain the repetitive quality along with a muted palette, this work explores the materials themselves as well.
To keep the large scale pieces relatable I am using childhood craft projects as a basis for the techniques used in assembling the work.  Everyday objects that can be found in abundance in most households are the materials from which I have chosen to make all the three dimensional forms. I feel this not only makes the work approachable but also gives it a familiarity.

When imagining this series I wanted to explore how space functioned within a body of work. Not just the optically perceived space of the canvas, but also the area between the two dimensional panel and the three dimensional sculptural component and finally, the spaces within the three dimensional elements. Although the physical work itself is important, the existing space in and around the piece is of equal importance. Honoring this, shadow, light and moving air can be properly showcased.

  This is where the idea of humidity comes in to play. Humidity is something that we can both see and feel. The thought of air having weight and presence becomes more tangible once water vapor is added.  

  The moving spheres represent gas phase particles (atoms, molecules or ions) moving freely as if they escaped from the painting.  As the viewer walks into the space the spheres will envelope them, then the viewer becomes part of the space.
