Artist's Statement

In much of my recent work, I've used images collected from magazines. I fold the images into fans and then cut them, sometimes using hole-punches; I do the same with patterned origami paper. I then layer these cutouts one on top of another and glue them onto a painted canvas. There is an element of serendipity and luck involved in this deconstructive /reconstructive process. I'm interested in the rearrangement of the image; how the negative spaces and missing parts are completed by the layer of patterned origami paper underneath.
