ARTIST STATEMENT: My work stems from patterns and traces of growth and decay in the natural world and the built environment. At an early age I saw electron micrographs and scientific specimens, and I am still engaged by abstracted images of nature. I am invested in the hand-drawn line for its conveyance of individualism, imperfection, and frailty, and I see my use of line as a tenuous analogy to ink painting. I consider my traces and rubbings of plywood and cracking walls as calligraphic gestures by some non-human artistic predecessor. Here, I copy marks made by impersonal forces—marks that record growth and time in wood and the residue of change and decay in ceilings, walls, and floors. I think of my work as some hand-drawn interpretations of the material evidence of time.
