Space provides a framework upon and through which lines are fabricated, marked and positioned. It is possible to shape this framework through an understanding of systems which define and regulate the line as a means of representing an experiential connection between the line and its active engagement with an individual. This condition allows for the line to function as a double of both physical construct and experiential interpretation. It is at this point when the line has a simultaneous purpose that I am most intrigued.

The drawing is intended to both mark the past and provide a space for a continuing observation of the present. My work considers both memory (past) and identity (present) to be inextricably linked, mutually defining and subject to constant change - in a process which values the ephemeral over the timeless, reclamation over restoration, to savor presence and acknowledge inherent impermanence, establishing unique time, unique place and collections of distinctive moments, all assembled into an engaging experience.
