"still...LIFE" is about fleeting stability in a fast changing world, and about the fragility of all living things. Life is fragile, and technology may enhance it, or confine and threaten, if not downright destroy it. Imprints of netting suggest a semblance of life. They may be torn, cut, or left untouched. Set in an environment of bold colors, they hold their own.

As I was working on these pieces, I was struck by the way the techniques I used corresponded to what I wanted to express. Dipping netting into ink, dropping it on paper or canvas, and cutting or tearing the imprints apart, was intuitive and physical. Serendipity played a role, but so did a discerning eye, and, yes, love. The constructivist part, on the other hand, involved planning, meticulous precision, and control form the start.
The message lies in the interaction between both worlds.
