 Artist’s Statement

In this my third solo exhibition at Figureworks Gallery I look into the material nature of art in our time.

I begin with figure drawings which I sew into three dimensions with a focus on lightness and expression.

Over time I experimented with various materials including the plastics which are part of this show.  I settled on Lutradur because it is light and transparent.

I greatly admire  the work of Jean Dubuffet.  Other influences include the Greer Langton, Marta Kuhn-Weber  and Eileen Gray.
