The “Menagerie” exhibition by the Phoenix artist is the culmination of five years of experimentation and documentation. These intricate works explore themes of desire, loss, anxiety, levity and mortality. While these components link the pieces, individually, they are explorations primarily realized through the art of drawing. The glimpses and portals into imaginary worlds were created with a near obsessive fascination with the possibilities of mark making on paper. Often, the paper surfaces were subjected to a process of creasing, crumpling, tearing and drenching — allowing for elements of chance to enter the finished works. Much like life.
