rides it like a stick horse.
* Thank you to the tired business man who falls asleep on the shoulder of the stranger seated next to him on the train.
* Thank you to the woman looking at my "Life's Most Embarrassing Moments" show with her skirt tucked into her panties.
* Thank you to the man with food stuck in his teeth who asked me, "Where do you get your ideas?"
My work is a unique and often humorous investigation of everyday happenings and personal events: subway commuters crowded cheek-to-cheek and nose-to-nose; smiling family gatherings with the unspoken sense of competition, comparison, and judgment; participants in customer lines, each engaged in his or her own "individual" activities.
My figures have been described as caricatures, but I think of them as characters. Rather than exaggerate, I emphasize or pinpoint. I find my subjects within the daily mainstream routine. I am thankful for the entertaining oddities that real life deliveries to my door....
I work in paper pulp enhanced with paint, dye, or other found materials.
I approach the application of
color using the painting technique of layering pulp from dark to
light, in some instances building the surface into a relief,
creating a piece of art that changes its look as the available
light changes. This can be accomplished by manipulating space,
introducing relief figures and reflective materials.
