“Making works in series allows me to convey a sense of the perpetual movement and variation of the material world.”
“Feeling the need… to break out from the painterly constraints of two dimensions, she has burst gleefully (there is no other word for it) into three.”
John Russell Taylor, 2006
The paper works are studies of how matter is formed and perceived: all of her art is an exploration of the fundamental structures of life. They build from three basic techniques: semi relief; cut-out, where three dimensions are perceived as light falls through the shapes; and relief, where light falling on a shape creates shadow and depth.
The works below are sold in secure box frames of matt white wood and clear glass, 60 cm square. Depth varies from 3cm to 13 cm, as specified by the artist to enable the intended light effect. They can also be supplied in acrylic boxes for an additional cost. For enquiries and a sales catalogue, email firstname.lastname@example.org or use the form on the contact page.
