Things I've saved

Things I’ve saved is an ongoing series that focuses on the collection and reworking of process materials and scraps such as old palettes and cut up paintings, in order to create new compositions that play with scale, rhythm, movement, and color. The question of how we assign value to the objects we keep,  desire, or make underlies the process of saving materials for years because I see potential and value in even the smallest scrap. The pieces are adhered to panel or canvases and I’m currently exploring different grounds and working on larger scale works. My studio practice of collecting materials echoes my lifelong collection and documentation of natural objects while exploring my environments.
