BRIEF ARTIST STATEMENT
I make wall-based geometric abstractions by inventing systems for visualizing values of numbers, specifically of sequences from the numbers pi and e, by utilizing grids and repetition of simple geometric shapes. Numbers are the direct source of abstraction.
Majority of my past works are wall-based, crocheted fiberglass constructions. In 1996, when these things began, they were based on identity narratives. Number sequences made their way in as design necessity to deal with space and time issues. I realized then that numbers are in all aspects of identity. Since 2007, all my work has been number generated.
In early 2011, I began exploring new systems of mapping sequences, anchored in drawings that range from simple notations as graph plots to complex layered patterns that visualize hundreds of digits. While working on my first series of screen-prints in 2016, I was introduced to a laser cutter and began working with laser-cut acrylic sheet. Most recently, my interest in photography has made its way back into my studio practice. A new iPhone and increased city driving in 2016 resulted in hundreds of snapshots which led to another new body of work which combines digital prints on transparency film with laser-cut acrylic.
