My paper constructions are explorations into a theme of natural and manmade disaster I have been exploring for the last several years in my work. This theme emerged from my own personal anxieties as well as the world events.
Even though carnage from a natural disaster or war is disturbing and damaging, brute force and brutality can be intoxicating and seductive. I translate these images into more abstract objects with prickly textures and complex structures. My sculptures are constructed from various paper parts resembling architectural elements. Every part is painstakingly hand made and assembled into larger installation. I like working with paper for its fragility and accessibility. It is a common material with a long history that can be manipulated in many different ways.
I am interested in assembling and breaking down structures creating scenes and objects bristling with tension somewhere between beautiful and dangerous.
