The Edges of Walls
38 x 38 x 1.5
My work is about spatial relationships. By mapping metric spaces, using a kind of isometry, I’m representing multiple levels of space, simultaneously. Drawn spaces are rotated, reflected, translated and layered, integrating the negative spaces and the spaces of overlap as elements.
Chairs are a reoccurring image in my work both two and three dimensionally. I find the basic structure of a chair and its rudimentary relationship to architectural space compelling. Found chairs often become starting points for sculptural objects and installations and my graphite drawings are layered studies of these structures, as I fold it onto itself or open it up. Chairs are markers in space and can become signifiers for place and location.
Edges of rooms is from a series of shelter in place drawings and is directly related to this period of time during Covid-19. These drawings reference interior domestic space, along with furniture and other architectural elements.
