To reflect my manner and acknowledge my current locale, I have been making site-specific minimalist installations in and around New Bedford, Massachusetts. The objects made of clay, paper, ink, metal, and fibre are abstract references to the grid – symmetrical and structured. Captivated by this universal construct of containment, boundaries, repetition and continuity, I create compositions utilizing primary elements in multiples. I find beauty in perfection and the extraordinary in imperfection; by placing the work outside, I am forcing it to rot, decay, melt, transform. Like myself, it is not to be confined within four walls.
