Recycled paper, tree branches, paint, gloves
Packing materials are of interest - they evolve. Recently I am attracted to large remnants of paper used for packing. They are very interesting as they are unfolded they come to life. I decided to combine them with the source of their existence - tree branches and suspend them. They move gently and are in concert with air movements in the gallery.
The use of bright colors is to draw attention to an otherwise mundane material. The gloves are part of the painting process; I felt they created a trompe l' oeil effect - suspended in time.
