ARTIST STATEMENT
My work illustrates imagined spaces and implied spaces—spaces that make sense to our eyes but not always to our minds. By using graphic materials like cut paper, neon, and glass, I extend flat drawings and patterns into a slippery space of “2.5 dimensions”, coined by neuroscientist David Marr. My goal is to create a limbo of flat and 3-D, real and imaginary, or tangible and intangible.
