"I make drawings, and installations. My elements are line and light; my materials are pencils, vellum and the movement of my body. I am a vessel gathering subtle and rapturous processes in nature, using the experiences and impulses to make my work. I record mist turning into water. I let wind move my body so that it leaves traces on paper. I swim through thousands of layers of gray air and mark each one down. Most of my work is born in the solitude of my studio. Sometimes public performances with musicians and dancers draw me out from the safe silence of my space and expand my drawing practice. I am interested in the never-ending process of becoming with no story, no beginning, no end—just the current moment in flux."
Plastic paper is attached to a foamboard and tilted down away from the artist, as she bends forward with her hands clasping graphite and colored pencils together, spilling the lines down toward the ground, letting her upper body fall forward as loosely but forcefully as possible.
A blend of the athletic and the meditative, these works respond to the wash of water spilling over sidewalks and human barriers in the wake of the big recent hurricanes in New York and New Jersey.
