Sailor Song
Statement: 

I layer abstract systems. One system or image is superimposed on top of the previous. The subsequent layering creates unpredictable relationships of color, space and form. Each piece is worked repeatedly, heightening its corporeal presence. The objects are not complete until the layers coalesce on the surface of the physical armature. I establish rituals, pouring acrylic mediums laden with ink, raw pigment and glitter. I repeatedly employ pattern, hand painting variations on simple themes. I streak translucent gels with thin veils of low-viscosity acrylic paint. In my work, the sculptural commingles with the painterly and the drawn, articulating a space wherein boundaries are blurred and the rhythms of color and form are allowed a heightened leeway.
