The dissimulation of the woven texture can in any case take centuries to undo its web. -Jacques Derrida, Dissemination
I examine the crossover between textile and drawing, thread and line, and the space between remnants and what used to be. This “between-space” is both solid and fleeting, like the moment between breaths—a line continuously tracing between now and then—that is deeply poetic to me.
Our social fabric, with its recent rips and tears, begs to be expressed.
My work sits between emotional and physical repair and its companions, degradation and decay. I rescue and champion the humble and frayed, finding a tentative beauty in things fragile, handmade or in need of care, while finding a complementary energy in their deconstruction.
