The main strategy I have been using in my current work is to come up with marks that form a response to each type of surface used - a response specific to that surface, be it paper, cloth, or a found surface. As a result of this approach, in many pieces there seems to be a close interaction between surface and mark that sometimes leads to confusion between the two - the image partially escapes vision.

This strategy has extended to the installation of the work. The play between marks and surfaces within each work persists in the installation of the work, with the walls and floors this time being the surface and the actual works becoming some kind of “mark”. I am drawn to these ambiguous relationships and “fugitive” images/artworks - they have the potential of leading to a partial destabilization of seemingly fixed categories. I am searching for moments/spaces where the border or hierarchy between surface and mark, between what was there and what was subsequently added, begins to destabilize and the edges demarcating or separating works/spaces/times become uncertain.
