The dissimulation of the woven texture can in any case take centuries to undo its web. -Jacques Derrida, Dissemination
I examine the space between textile and drawing, man and nature, and what remains from what once was. This “between-space” is literal, like the moment between breaths, and figurative—an ambiguous area rife with possibility, truth and lies. In my work, thread and trace lines often obscure as much as they reveal.
Emotional and physical repair are common motifs, as well as degradation and decay. I rescue and champion the humble and the frayed through wrapping and other techniques.
