My artwork exists where my frame of reference intersects that of others. The work is my “reading” - of words, events, and gestures. Words and symbols can only have meaning within a context - the surroundings that make them understandable. The word context derives from the Latin verb texo, meaning “I weave,” with text only later coming to mean something written. Text’s roots are still evident in the Italian words testo, for text, and tessuto, for fabric. My work emerges from unraveling the context in which I receive events, words, and gestures, then reweaving those threads into something new.
