Artist Statement 2019

We often forget that discarded materials, plastics, found wood, packaging wrappers contain the potential for transformation. Their nature reflects a strange parallel: the overwhelming need for these materials and the overwhelming discarding of these materials. The exhausting condition of excess, the overflow of packaging waste reflects the repetitive consumerist behavior, consumption without thought. Printmaking, and the process of stenciling adapts this repetitive process is part of my artistic intention. My grandfather gave me stencils as a child and since then I have continued to make marks on paper with stencils and now other discarded materials, and optimize them for a resurrection in creative use.
