Starting with single piece of mylar, I created this three dimensional form by making cuts into the material that allow it to open up into a lacey, flowing landscape. Mountains and valleys grow out of the paper to make a topography that alludes to geology as well as architectural forms. Using an x-acto knife as my pen I “draw” these lines on the page to transform a flat sheet of material into an undulating form. I am intrigued and mesmerized by the magic of creating a voluminous body that takes up space out of a thin layer. Working spontaneously the sculpture takes shape as I cut across the sheet without a fixed plan in my head; decisions are made as I progress with the goal of creating a balanced piece that flows through space.

Expanding Landscape
Expanding Landscape was commissioned by a private client and has been featured in several gallery shows, including Around the Flat Show at Spring Gallery in DUMBO, NY, Craft Texas at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, Texas National 2010 at Houston's Peel Gallery, and Celebrate Texas Art at the Williams Tower, Houston.="yui_3_3_0_3_132804857106570">

Made from a continuous piece of mylar, cuts in the material allow the sheet to open up into a three dimensional landscape. This landscape investigates the interaction between the two-dimensional and three-dimensional worlds. The piece is both a translation of a shadow into a physical form as well as a structure that generates complex shadows as an integral element of the complete work.
