Gardens Statement

Garden Series

I began pouring large four to six foot colored sheets in 1992. The technique I developed allowed me to couch these wet sheets on top of one another. I would manipulate the colors and subtract pulp from some sheets. The laminating of these multihued multi-fibered sheets led to this “garden” series. The message, about time and space, the slow and methodical aspect of manipulating the wet pulp reminds me of Japanese sand gardens, the farmers plowed field or ripples in a stream.
