Artist Statement

My concept of the art box was developed during a watercolor course at UW-Milwaukee in 1967. By extending the space within the box, the paper can be manipulated into an active surface, creating a strong spatial effect. The glass also becomes an active element and has to be considered constantly as the images and colors float over and interact with the paper's images and the colors inside. This manipulation of the actual space and the implied sense of space, along with the interplay of imagery between paper and glass, create unlimited possibilities for inventing new and exciting visual statements.
