For the past two decades, I have been working on aluminum panels – attacking the metal with sanders, hammers, routers and drills. Surfaces of paint are layered, sanded, and stripped away, in a process that mirrors ideas about vestiges of time in my work. The layers of paint removed through this arduous process are not reconnected- stitched and woven together to create the Renewal Series. They reflect a spirit of renewal, of regeneration, of drawing on the past time and past events as inspiration for the future.
