Artists Statement   CV   Press Release

In these drawings, life forms and nature’s trappings are set against vast and monumental locations. The artist cites the importance of the contrast between the micro - scale of her organisms and subjects and the macro - scale of their settings. However, the existence of the locations and the animals or objects in these works is fraught with more than just the tension of their contrasting scales.

In reality, these pictures depend on disruption. This is a gentle disruption that begs for contemplative consideration. The soft graphite renderings and the buttery layers of duralar give these works a sense of quiet that is then jarringly interrupted. In some works, her subjects penetrate the layers of the duralar, floating under and over the landscape. Like scale, perspective is manipulated to achieve the disarming and dreamlike effect.
