Most of my recent work has been very process driven. I keep coming back to the processes that fascinate me. And I am coming to realize they are all unpredictable-- I have no idea for sure of what the result will be-- and I like that element of chance involved-- the responding to the materials and elements-- moment to moment. This series of work involves creating masks and resists from various materials- rice papers, tissue, strings and then applying paint in layers, printing over printing until I have an image that is mysterious and ethereal-- an image that takes me places.
