On the Cutting Room Floor
Constructing story narratives out of snippets of visual information I decode stories into their basic elements. Then out of the fragments reconstruct a new visual dialogue.
Using paper, photography, painting, and other mixed media I explore the unseen symbolic meaning of colour, space, time and material. Cutting and trimming much like I do as a film editor slowly assembling each artwork. In this way I feel connected to the story that emerges from these meditative symbolic patterns. My artwork offers a portal to the process of creation and thus challenging the viewer to analyse and question their understanding of the coded messages of everyday life.
