Artist Statement
In my series, Pieces, I create with tiny pieces of paper cut into simple geometric shapes: squares, rectangles, lines, and circles. My mantra with this work is a meditative freedom. Through the multiplicity of shapes and layers, everything seems organic. My mind is relaxed. The process creates an architectural assemblage inspired by Japanese, Tibetan, and Italian art and practiced in a silent state of doing – constructing tiny bits of myself into a formal image.
