Artist Statement

What started out as a way of keeping the photographic paper processor replenished with chemistry, turned out to be the start of a lengthy art project. The project started out as a simple study of light and the human form on these blank pieces of paper that were going through the mating. Since it didn’t make sense to send through a blank canvas, why not fill it? I was intrigued at how different body positions and light sources came together in these beautiful, gestural and abstract forms. Then, by taking the paper off the easel and wrapping and rolling it around my body, it further enhanced the fluid motion of the work.
