Brief Artist Statement

World Trade Center as a Cloud (no. 4), 2011, handmade paper, linen on cotton, 30×40”.

I needed to make an artwork of the World Trade Center but it couldn’t
be physical; too much steel and concrete had already been negotiated.
I wanted the work to exist outside of time; it had to be both before and
after September 11th. Like a Helen Frankenthaler painting I wanted the
image to happen all at once – like it just spilled out of a bucket. I wanted
it to remind me of the event that changed everything and still not make
me sad. Mostly I wanted to remember that blue, blue sky and the distant
echo of an unforgettable presence.
