In the aftermath of the 2008 economic crash, I began several series’ using receipts and windowed envelopes as the groundwork for my collages, “Reciprocal City”, “Sunshinelaw”, and the ongoing series “Reciprocity”. My current work entitled “Women Receipt” narrows the focus to women’s place in the market, as consumer, commodity, as gift, and Karl Marx’s shocking oversight of women as a major factor both producing and maintaining the work force. I use materials that are primarily discarded or overlooked--paper napkins, receipts, envelopes, and the like- layering texture, form and color followed by paint to highlight and extract poetry from discord and discard. I work from my studio in Gowanus in Brooklyn, NY.
