2011 Under the Fold

This new series of work represents an experimental foray into the area between my two-dimensional drawings on paper and my recent spatial installations which incorporate techniques such as projection and drawing directly onto the walls and floor. It is a playful attempt to bridge the gap between the “white page” and the “white cube”. By folding, curling and cutting holes in the paper, I am aiming to transform the flat page into a miniature three-dimensional space with which the figures appear to interact: a fold becomes the perfect hiding place, a hole becomes a window for a quick escape route. Partially hidden, figures tumble over curves and hide around corners, with the potential to disappear from sight at any moment.
