“containment” series

Artist Statement

This series explores urban consciousness, especially as it relates to the geography of the city and its waterways.  I push beyond the glittering icons to examine the rawness that lies beneath the surface. I pose questions about the price we pay, beyond the cost of the goods, for their manufacture and conveyance. My inquiry is expressed through a mixed media process that employs repurposed papers found on urban streets with layers of mark making, inks and paints.
