For the past several years, I have become increasingly interested in the relationship and interaction of figures in space and how they can be interpreted in form and color in my prints.  Shorn of distinguishing facial features and clothing detail, they become anyone and everyone: uniquely individual and somewhat mysterious. The figures are selected because of their gestural qualities. They are frequently, but not always, based on people I know and have had the opportunity to observe as they go about their daily lives. Taken out of those contexts and rearranged into a panorama, I seek to create a narrative all its own: one that is especially meaningful to me on a personal level and one that invites interpretation by the viewer. In addition, the vibrant, subtle and nuanced range of colors within the prints creates a complex interrelationship between the figures and the physical space.
