"With a background as a weaver I use lace structures as a conceptual foundation for my work. I define lace as a container of negative space and argue that the negative space is more important than the patterns or the thread itself. Lace becomes a barrier that allows for the separation from the other side as well as adds a heightened attention to the things it cages. Lace can be understood as a screen, a filter and as a lens; obstructing and abstracting the view into fractured parts. It creates a cadence between the effort it takes to make clear the image beyond and the awareness of the structure itself."
