Works in the Drape Series incite a dialogue between two dimensional wall painting and three dimensional soft sculpture. The colors - quick, dense, often opaque in application - fall in new ways when the stretch is removed and the textile comes undone, and hangs. Compositions and chiaroscuro are ever new when unpinned and flipped, turned, reimagined in situ.
