"It is all too easy to take language, one's own language, for granted-one may need to encounter another language, or rather another mode of language, in order to be astonished, pushed into wonder, again." - Oliver Sacks, Seeing Voices: A Journey into the World of the Deaf, 1989
My work investigates perception and how meaning is deciphered. How we navigate our perceptual terrain is complicated by the fact that what we excavate, discover and describe is always over-determined by the tools we use: language, memory, science, line, shape, color, etc.: puzzling this out is the subject of my work.
I use elemental and pedestrian materials (copper plates, copper tubes, player piano scrolls, plastic tubing) and traditional processes (etching, drypoint, graphite and pencil drawing) and deploy the shadows cast from the works.
