Gallery A

These earlier works concentrate on the membrane of the page -- its skinlike quality that can be scarred like our own bodies and its cultural link to ideas, language, and communication. The scale of these pieces is fairly small and demands close attention, an intimate viewing. The format and scale of the opened book (the Western codex form) in suites of work such as the Folio Series: Nature Study, reflect an ongoing interest in the sheet of paper as a means of recording.
