Process

Using found paper materials I use my scissors to slice through metal, wood and colour linking aesthetic formal qualities like line, shape and colour into new familial patterns and structures. Play and machine motion collide in my quasi-structures.  Colour and shape push and pull through the designs as the forces of fluids, gravity, momentum and steam might. I employ the imagined methodologies of piecework and quiltmaking to the architectural, machine and dogmatic diagrammatic illustrations that I find. Reinventing and upending the formality and authority of the diagram while tilting and crashing the 3D language of photography. These scrap-systems are neither collage, nor photography, painting nor sculpture.
