My approach to Fresco, is not from a historical perspective, as in the way Michaelangelo created the Sistine Chapel. It draws instead from my perspective as a drywall taper. I’m using my knowledge of what not to do, of mistakes, to create a material language of hope. I’m speaking about breakage and repair, scars and healing. I’m exploring how mark-making can provide comfort. Can a surface full of history develop a presence that can hold space for another persons pain? Can it be a listener for whatever the viewer needs to process? Can I leave tracks as I work through my own emotional work, that might lead someone else in their healing process? As I exhibit and talk about them, I’m discovering that I can.
