Work > Surface Investigations
My paintings explore the nature and fragility of the superficial layer. Using silk organza as my canvas, the paintings present the surface for what it is, a dubious facade wrought with hidden elements. Each work reveals its infrastructure, conceding how it was made. Light, shadow and sculptural elements become an integral part of each work. The steady build-up of the porous silk surface and the delicate embroidered thread intentionally slow the process of making and experiencing the work. Often, these works are responding directly or inspired by the site responsive Paintings in Space.
