About

Abstract black and white pattern on fabric made with acrylic and inkjet transfer. Artist Statement The idea of a placeholder has become important to me. By thinking of an abstract field (or even a character or form) as a placeholder I set aside the need to find lasting or profound answers. It’s almost a way of tricking myself into working, but also a away to open up the art field so that I have freedom to move there. Art history is full of foreclosure, so there is a need to find a way to work, and a way to value creativity. I see the abstract fields I’ve been making as spaces that can be receptive to different content or narrative possibilities. The fields of shimmering concentric patterns create a space that can then be punctuated by images or objects, or left as loud, vibrating voids. It’s that old story of the sacred and profane. Although I’m skeptical of creating a sacred space, I remain stubbornly invested in producing something ineffable.
