These abstract landscapes developed from crumpling up paper from old sketch pads in my studio when I was searching for concept. Over time, it has grown into a larger body of work in which I source different types of paper manufactured in long rolls—the most recent pieces have been made from seamless background paper for photography. I find inspiration from my memory of the rural surroundings in northern Ohio of where I grew up. I view them as incremented landscapes and metaphorical like the edge of pages in a book. Each piece is fabricated with a high quality bookbinding glue onto an archival hardboard substrate. When viewing them in person, there's a quality of movement that creates a visual rhythm and feels meditative.
