A dynamic balance exists between destruction and creation, as the transformative potential of each is intrinsically linked to the other. Everything, including human beings, is in a constant state of change. The continuum of change can be subtle or dramatic, but it is ubiquitous and ongoing. In my studio practice, I investigate notions of trace and transience as I use the corrosive properties of iron to document the transformation of materials by rusting on canvas.
