As if dug from the center of the earth, my pieces often resemble scientific models or artifacts whose strata and embedded fragments reveal a history, just as the layers of the earth tell a story of climate shifts, planetary events and cataclysmic disruptions. In my work, layers of color form the strata of a methodology in which the immediacy of the hand can translate a sense of deep time, marking new eras, delineating ages, and trapping stories that are part of the time/space continuum.
