"h. (2020) is the latest addition to my on-going “cut out" series. Over the past six years, I’ve been cultivating a technique on paper that involves inking, drawing, carving, and cutting the surface of the page. This process has yielded a series of works that appear on the verge of disintegration; some of them holding on by thin fibers. This is intentional as I experiment with formal elements of shape, border, surface, and weight, testing the strength and structure of the two-dimensional page."
Copper Agnes is a site-specific installation in my studio’s west-facing, 6 X 6” steel framed doorway. I was anxious to realize this installation that until now has only resided as a sketch in my journal and as a study on my wall. It consists of copper wire and magnets: material that is reflective, conductive, attractive, and repellent. I am working with the element of energy in it’s extreme and I remind myself to respect it. Energy is a quality that I want to harness.
