Catalogue Note

"The idea of what can be done with the language [of geometry] interests me. Just as in Picasso, language is a closed set, and yet he can infinitely reassociate things to make them into different kinds of signs. I am trying to do that with a far more limited set of signs...The idea of stylistic change is not important to me because I see my work as research into certain issues rather than as an attempt to create a stylistic statement."
