My new work uses remnants of canvas rolls, old jeans, random cut paper and fabrics, pieces of manufactured borders, edges. The process of making the paintings is inherent in the design of the painting itself, where pieces are added, subtracted, woven, painted or drawn around or on or under, or are actually illusory. There are images and ghost images. They are built with a high degree of chance in the process as well as silent contemplation. The paintings seem to me to bring out questions one could ask about "reality": what is real or appears so but isn't, the weaving of events that create a situation, about relationships, about thoughts or ideas we have but don't manifest, how does a mere definition by a line create the impression of some thing (like saying something is so, makes it appear so)(politicians), how to tune into the small whisper within, that, the silence that underlies all the busyness of living .
