Adelante - 71
Mixed media on paper | 2023
Adelante explores our relationship to objects, and our ability to delegate new meaning and structure. “The colors and scratches of these intaglio cuttings had a different meaning not long ago. The conditions that first created these marks are already gone; what place can the remnants presently hold?” Though removed and replanted, the pieces of each collage are not isolated. The compositions employ order and hierarchy, each a specific, intentional structure and a home for new meaning.

“Mistakes often become the final piece. I like to be surprised in the studio. Old works inform new works, along with failed attempts and piles of trashed material.”
