UNDER CONSTRUCTION

In the large works on paper titled "Under Construction," lines form piles of lumber, ladders, windows, and structural beams. The scale of the drawings invites viewers to imagine entering a construction site, but one that is unstable and impossible. Spaces are at once exterior and interior, with infinite additions and subtractions and cutouts in the paper itself; the simultaneous building and destroying of the images suggests either an optimism underlying destruction. / Graphite and charcoal on paper; 72 x 96 inches

The cutout fragments from the larger drawings were saved to make new collages, positives from the negative spaces. / Graphite on paper; approximately 8 x 15 inches
