During this 3 month residency I am primarily working with the industrial housing material, Tyvek, which I discovered in 2008 wrapped on houses, I begin with handcutting (without prior sketching) marks that cannot be erased. I'm interested in advancing the material
using process of making it unrecognizable from its original purpose and function, which is to seal and protect.
In intervening with positive and negative space, and pushing the form with manipulation, I am engaged in what it
is to stretch and develop a material's potential, as a symbol for change and transformation
led by chance, control and uncertainty, elements of both life and art.
In drawing, gesture, and layering, making is part of the content.--
