My pieces illustrate how I deal with life. I have an obsessive personality, but find patience and calmness in making art. For me, the act of mark making is reflective. While creating, I am able to refocus my compulsions and anxious energy. The systems and repetitions I create allow me to find order in disorder. I often become overwhelmed by the chaos that surrounds me; however, my process allows me to feel a sense of control. My work demonstrates an organized chaos, a tension between contemplation and anxiety. I become meditative when I immerse in my process, focusing solely on my work, getting lost in the construction and deconstruction of systems.
The structures I develop become a woven pattern of overlapping and intertwining geometric shapes and lines. The marks become a network of systems and patterns that I build and deconstruct by establishing a logic and method. I typically count off each mark, creating routines and order within the complex structures. This further engages me in the process and gives my mind an opportunity to be distracted from my anxiety.
Although my work is strategic and systematic, the minute details demonstrate a humanistic element. Mistakes occur within my mark making, and my hand can be seen in the lines. I embrace these details that allow the pieces to become more personal. Being able to see my hand in the piece makes the work less mechanical and, instead, adds a human quality, an element that is very significant to me.
