The physical act of folding, wrapping and tethering well- worn cloth brings fresh insight to my urban inspired wall sculptures. Textile itself refers to an ancient practice and I bring it to new conversations about form with wrapped and manipulated elements. The dialogue moves from textile art to contemporary sculpture.
My assemblage work always begins as a playful process of sorting through piles of materials. This may include wood, metal, plastic, rocks or found objects. Much like an archaeologist, I discover the inherent character and subtle nuances of each finding. I bring these parts and pieces together to build form. As the parts and pieces inch closer together, they form connections and begin to dialogue. At that moment, I know the work is born.
