"I call these vertically hanging pieces 'Presences.'
They evoke ruins, erosion and the passage of time.
Casting shadows on the wall, much like garments that offer us protection, they are created by forcing pigmented pulp through bamboo slats, a method I developed during an artist's residency in Japan. The formal bearing of each work adds to the persistent presence-- the essence of persons who remain in our memory although no longer in our lives.
