interview with Daily Imprint

'...In these works I built up the surface and pushed the boundaries of the peeling, tearing and perforating the paper until it bordered on the three dimensional. The process represents the challenges of being in transition, of being pulled in different directions, the feeling of occupying two or more spaces at once, of trying to maintain the delicate balance between control and unpredictability. Essentially, the mixed media works in Torn are experimental iterations driven by a love of materials and surfaces and the search to find the optimum point where ideas, technique and media come together.'
