"Language has seeped into my work, insinuating itself for the past ten years. In this body of work, I am continuing my interest in the intersection of text and image, and especially the evolution of the image as an analogy or shadow of the text. Having developed from the use of actual language and its’ development, the forms become a personal hieroglyph.
The Glyphs series relate to a previous group of works, in which I had been investigating how language emerges, the evolution from sound to word to thought. As in the earlier projects, the images are built by layering and eradicating over a long period of time, revealing in them a history and accumulation, comparable to language acquisition. The compositions of these works are themselves a result of accumulated shapes. I have also long been fascinated with the issue of voice, and the correspondence of sound. The series attempts to resolve the conversation I am always having in my work—between wanting to reveal all, and the desire to obliterate. It is as if the pieces themselves need to speak."
