The influence, inspiration and ideas behind my current work is influenced by my fascination and love of the night sky, specifically images seen through the Hubble Telescope. Images of the Milky Way and star clusters give an impression of movement through time, especially in the way their light arcs across the night sky and fades to morning. The contradiction between static imagery and movement becomes central to my compositions. By using sheer fabric and paper, I explore how light and shadow becomes part of that movement. The fabric creates an organic, somewhat simple abstraction of the original image or theme, while the bent wire relays a tension that cannot be duplicated on canvas. This work explores the scope of textures, colors, shapes and compositions in the vast expanse of the night sky.
