Artist's Statement

I am fascinated by the intangible, by things that are challenging to explain because they do not have a physical presence or that are larger than the space which they physically occupy.  I am curious about what gazing at length and repeatedly might reveal.  Configurations and convergences can impart feelings or spark insights that go beyond appearances.  The small and easily overlooked  can carry great significance for the beholder.

My work is informed by Jungian thought and immigrant experience.  I tend to cross or to blur boundaries between disciplines and art making media. To avoid distractions of the obvious, my inclination is to work in series and projects over extended periods of time.  Working in this way leaves space for details and subtleties to emerge and to impact my thinking.
