The act of visual expression allows individuals to exemplify diverse unspoken communication and the opportunity to open up a greater dialogue that lives beyond the picture plane. This visual communication becomes a creative sentiment when the end product of art and craft is not the principle focus. By emphasizing the “process” of making art, rather than any predetermined composition or plan, I am able to show concepts of change and transience. This act of artistic creation is a way to marry the conceptual with the physical, bodily realities of working in the studio, and pulls back the curtain on the process itself. A form of deconstructivism begins that is characterized by an interest in manipulating the picture plane’s surface or the image fragmented upon it. This sentiment is shown through a body of work that explores the act of process making and its effect on the end product, opening up binaries of presence and absence through mark making.
