The wall sculptures are informed by stick charts used by Pacific Islanders to teach tides, waves, and currents to ocean navigators. I also take interest in cave paintings, pictographs, hieroglyphs, and test patterns. They convey information and contain incidental abstract beauty. Until recently, most of my work was free-standing and vertical and read as two-dimensional graphics. Now, I have opted to negate the base and approximate the idea of the work floating in space by securing it to white walls. I like the contradiction of that and of realizing drawing as a physical object.
