The impulse to frugality and sustainability manifests in my studio practice, whether it’s using found and re-purposed objects, or recycling paintings and drawings. This make|do attitude, coupled with a fascination with how chance can reveal unexpected relationships, informs the challenge I set for myself in "Phoenix Rising": giving new life to old work. First, I removed the canvas from the stretcher bars of several small paintings. Then, I cut them into pieces, mostly squares. The fun was finding relationships between disparate pieces and configuring these into a single new piece.
