"For many years I have explored the role of memory and memorials in fashioning human history and identity in my art. My present artistic explorations dramatically portray the configurations and coding processes of memory. The finished works are represented as metal ancestral boxes, mixed-media fiber sculptures, paintings, prints or photographs. Generally they are representative of memory as a template in which the mind stores cherished experiences of places and events. Within its cavernous recesses, the mind processes innumerable data by inscribing and scrawling on highly sensitive memory templates. Through evocative automatic writing the calligraphic marks and strokes of swirling lines, overlays of materials, colors and textures evoke the soberness recesses of the mind. The painterly textured or scratched surface compositions relate to atmospheric conditions and naturalistic formations in nature."
