My works-on-canvas are created through a meditative process of layering paint and fabric. I blur the distinction between the two, in order to transcend the materials into a viewing experience.  Each work is titled, Superstring, after the theory in physics that demonstrates the unification of all matter and forces. And they are numbered to mark a moment in time.  Living in the space somewhere in between, a mandala and a vortex, each piece is set with an intention and aims to connect metaphysical realms, with the parameters of our physical existence.  Metaphorically, these works address the interconnected and layered world we live in and the necessity for balance.  Textiles are traditionally associated with ‘women’s work' and is imbued with a long history of interior spaces and labor. I incorporate salvaged fabrics from clothing and domestic materials, as a way to highlight the importance of those narratives. My goal is also to bring awareness to the environmental crisis ‘fast fashion’ is creating.
