My work employs a reactive process of erasure, reworking and material overlay used to delineate geometric forms I have developed from redrawing and editing elements of found technical and scientific images. Active surfaces and perceived space are created through accrued layering, selected removal of specific areas or with the addition of textures. I work toward developing a seductively uncomfortable optical experience, emphasizing differences where figure and ground are equally present. In this process, a simple geometric image reveals a multitude of choices and directions to investigate.
