In Psalm 90, verse 12, Moses asks of God:
Teach us to number our days,
that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
Facing the death and lengthy illness of loved ones, I’ve struggled to open my heart, overcome fear and frustration, and learn to treasure each joyous, tragic and astonishing moment. My work celebrates the gift of time, experimenting with geologic principles (younger-over-older, younger-cuts-older) to make time and motion visible, while investigating ways that drawing, painting and sculpture can take on some of the characteristics of time-based media.
