Corrugated cardboard construction: A simple refrigerator box. Who doesn't
have fond memories of playing in one? It's a comfort zone of creativity
and imagination. Working with cardboard as a material for art is an extension
of that childhood joy. There is a sense of play and wonder in the work, “a
visual familiar” that connects with one's personal history.
Be it a figure, an abstraction or a simple vessel, the creation of the artwork enlists the complexity of form and surface. The visible history of the material, my own emotional connections with cardboard and the various processes of fabricating are the raw elements that constitute the substance of the work. These experiments with perception stretch the possibilities of the material in infinite directions.
