After focusing almost exclusively on three-dimensional work during the first part of my career, over the last three decades I have slowly moved from drawing images in an ephemeral manner—such as sketching in chalk on cement floors or grabbing any utensil and scrap of paper—to formalizing them with more traditional materials. These are now more permanent works.
I paint, draw, and print to preview ideas, manipulate images, narrate concepts, and create design and gesture. It is a useful counterpoint to my three-dimensional work, as the nature of the media generally enables me to adapt and realize these explorations in a more timely manner, even as I develop the shapes slowly and chronicle the handmade process as I work. The two-dimensional pieces, while sometimes preceding or being created subsequent to a sculpture, are also clearly intended to stand on their own.
