Statement

I use minimal geometry to explore ideas of love, commitment, sacrifice and memory of time and space.  Through abstraction and repetition of architectural and natural forms, I make environments and objects that convey the specific feeling and character of a place or event. The ephemeral nature of paper offers the perfect medium to characterize the fleeting feelings of memory. Transforming a two-dimensional surface into a three dimensional shape offers a variety of arrangements for the play of light and shadow on different flat planes.  I use folding to investigate these opportunities, and the circle acts as a character to reveal and conceal form. When repeated, these forms are my substitute for the geometric grid, my response to the squares of Sol Lewitt and Carl Andre and homage to Agnes Martin's rectangles.
