In the year 2000, I started on two bodies of work; "Rocksbreath," a sculptural installation for the courtyard of the Burlington Arts Centre, and the other, "Tools for Daily Living," a mixed media series of wall pieces. The latter work was an attempt to merge my sculptures with my paintings. What excited me was exploring the possibility of relating the two-dimensionality of the paper to the three-dimensionality of the clay. A dynamic layering occured between the textural qualities of the mark making on the paper, and sculpture. I am now working on a new series called "Camouflage," in which I am using found objects with my sculptures, and have the intention of incorporating japanese paper as a two-dimensional aspect.
