"In my Untitled series, I meticulously hand-cut individual strips of marine vinyl and stacked them onto wooden forms. As a bookbinder, vinyl was a material I used for hand-bound, soft cover journals. The form and process of the wall pieces came from an everyday practice of precutting enclosure straps for the journals and placing them on a screw on the wall. As these began to accumulate, I realized that I was denying the intended surface of the vinyl and exposing the innards of the synthetic fabric. This created a new construction of sophisticated and subtle color harmonies by way of hundreds of layered strips. As the number of the vinyl strips grow, the relationship of the visual structure shifts: the vinyl no longer conforms to the shape of the wood form, but instead rounds out to a gentle curve."
