Since 2008 I have organized my studio practice around Shakespeare’s Timon of Athens. For each character in the play I produce a distinct body of work, resulting in a collection of related pieces composed of separately considered parts. I also am interested in the concept of “edgeland” as articulated by the Lettrist and Situationist groups. An “edgeland” is a provisional zone at the outer fringe of cities where the urban blends into the rural, a district with fewer restrictions and the potential for greater freedom. I believe the canon also has an “edgeland” where things break down, and Timon of Athens locates me there%.
