ARTIST STATEMENT /
COTTAGE, BARN and SHED
I have always used the simple cottage and barn shape as a vehicle for my art. Stripping it of detail and human presence, I find the vacancy of the object allows me to see and feel the spirit and memories within the structure.
My sheds, though simplified as well, are different. They are not about what was there or what was left behind. Instead they encase our emotions, those we have tried to get rid of and those we have shed. These images are about letting go.
