Throughout the process of making these wood assemblages, I have
discovered an ongoing narrative in which I can insert myself to play a
role that is part my making, part divine. I have rescued the off-cuts
from going to the chipper, and now each one serves as an integral part
of a complete art piece. At the very least this process gives me a grip
on the world. I appreciate so much the way the work comes together; it’s
as if I am completing a puzzle or solving a mystery. Working with these
humble materials has shown me that truly the beyond is nearest at hand.
