Statement


My cut paper collages only “find” their meanings after they are created. They speak to me and I intuitively take in the meanings they convey. I begin with no preconceived intentions, and seek only a pleasurable juxtaposition of shapes, forms, colors, and spaces between elements. The two collages here spoke of world and political matters, which I attempt to keep out of my sphere, seeking only beauty and balance. But there it is. “Fulcrum” alludes to individual lives and world events hanging in delicate balance “Russian Roulette” turned out to be an accidental double-entendre commentary on the then-current inhabitant of the White House.
