My studio practice is based around the idea that process and experimentation instigate creation. The work is self-referential, in that I may make drawings, cut up the drawings and build sculptures, take apart the sculptures and create collages. Or I may collect scraps of past drawings, form sculptures, take photographs of the sculptures, create paintings from the photographs, dismantle the photographs to make collages, and then make paintings from the collages. The old work generates the new and explores the play between abstraction and representation. For example, the paintings are representational reproductions of abstract sculptures. However, one might argue that the abstract sculptures are more representational (in that they are the source objects) than the paintings. Besides images of my own work, there are no other references hanging on the walls of my studio. The work looks inward and is caught in the circuit of the process.
