I am working with the ubiquitous odd spaces caught on the edge of our reality; the places just outside our line of sight, occasionally glimpsed but never tangible enough to make perceptible in a material sense. Our awareness that those places exist, however transiently, helps us to manage our reality. Macarthur Park is a depiction of such fantasy worlds rendered by means of poetic bricolage. I am using materials and objects gleaned from years of collecting to produce new work that extracts meaning from them, yet also constructs new meanings in a fresh context.
