"The Arena"
1985 to current
Pastel and graphite on aged paper
18" x 23 1/2"

The physicality of the mark to the surface alongside transforming everyday materials into the unexpected is a continuous thread through my work. Included here too is "the Arena"; representing a figurative image which dissolves into space while engaging the paper's propoerties, as its edges crinkle and color turns to rust.
