Artist Statement

During the last five years I have made work based on modernist fonts. Using the "modernist DNA" of typography fonts such as Bauhaus, Futura and Helvetica, I create visual improvisations. I use fragments of found typography to take apart and put back together language. I have explored this subject in a variety of materials, including traditional painting media (encaustic and, more recently, polymer resins) as well as materials that extend the medium of painting (adhesive vinyl, flocking and metallic films in collage and large installations). Often I choose materials with which I can create a tension between the flat graphic voice of type and the fluidity of paint and handwriting.
