Artist Statement

These collage works of cut, torn, painted and pasted papers have a small intimate scale.  The rectangle both dominates and gives structure to the work with attention to the surface detail and layering.  With a compositional ordering, avoiding any illusionistic references, each piece becomes a composed self-contained presence.
