For this work I have used ledger paper, old envelopes and coffee filters, to construct grids of various sizes and patterns. The paper is painted with watercolor, or dyed with tea and then worked in various ways to not only celebrate but also to subvert the matrix.

Everywhere… signs, marks, evidence of existence, the laws of gravity, character, history, and imagination. Cracks in the asphalt that hint at some shift underneath. Pawprints in mud, dust on a web. There are inscriptions made by wind and sand, time and fire, or just tales told by mold or neglect or rubber tires on a curve of asphalt. The marks I make - cuts, holes, burns, stains or stitches in paper - are evidence of my truths: they are a code, a rhythmic, enigmatic, asemic language as well as a map to my subconscious meanderings.
