Space is all around us, defining distances and articulating the forms we recognize. These collages are constructed using black paper glued to white paper which I cut and re-cut, and finally arrange and glue down. They are usually made rapidly without too much reflection or second guessing, as a challenge to myself. Because I don’t want to think too much, there is an element of random placement that happens spontaneously in the creation of each piece. As I play with the placement of the paper elements, I am focused on the suggestion of space and movement. You may see the ocean or the woods, but it is just paper, cut, arranged, and glued down.
