ARTIST STATEMENT: My goal as a visual artist is to create iconographies that can communicate ideas to a range of audiences. The imagery usually incorporates the human figure, most often the female figure. The ideas revolve primarily around social issues and are presented through narrative or metaphor. The materials range from handmade paper—used for its ability to mimic a variety of materials as well as its inherent connotation of fragility—to a special form of Fiberglas-reinforced plaster called Hydrocal FGR95, originally developed for architectural casting. I’ve tended to work in that somewhat peculiar niche between painting and sculpture called “relief.” In the late 1990s I began to treat the wall as an integral part of the meaning, that is, something more than merely a backdrop. My most recent installations further explore the link between the human body and architecture.
