Reversible (Planes and Structures)
This body of work expounding on the question, painting and sculpture, engages the viewer in a dialogue including painting’s most often hidden dimension, the back of the canvas. The painted sculptures treat front and back without hierarchy as the back of the sculptures are folded over to the front, and becomes part of the ocular space within which the work is viewed. The mark-makings indicate that the structures begin with planes then are transformed by various cuts and folds shifting and clipping, allowing reconfiguration and random order.
This work, while examining what the material aluminum can do besides mimicking paper to a degree, is a contradiction in many ways; of randomness by contrivance, design and disorder, destruction and reconstruction.
