Continua started with my curiosity about the relationship between books, color, and time. I’ve always been drawn to forms and processes that show time as a continuum. I often collect trash items for experimentation in the studio and I began to paint some phone books that I had picked up from the street. The moisture from the dye caused the pages to warp and curl and they reminded me of strata in a geological core sample. The layers of color provided me with an image of time that was instinctively familiar and I wanted to use color to transform the books into a sculptural monument to the continuum. Like the layers of rock compressed beneath the surface of the earth, each page and each color contributes to a larger pattern that tells a story about the nature of time.
