Movement of Objects at Rest

Elements in a state of flux.
Processes underway.
Settling into a shape or position.
Suspended in a state of arrival or emergence.
Something coming into being.
Movement of Objects at Rest.

My work is process-oriented, rooted in materials-based working methods that allow me to explore physical and psychic phenomena such as flow, stasis, circulation, time, and the limits of sensory perception. The incremental, serial nature of the objects I make is driven by the desire to understand how line evokes form and creates meaning while remaining resolutely abstract.

The exhibition title, Movement of Objects at Rest, is drawn from David A. Slawson’s book, Secret Teachings in the Art of Japanese Gardens. His translation of a fifteenth century gardening manual has deepened my thinking about drawing as a process of finding correlations between external and internal phenomena.
