When asked to make a statement about my work, part of me begins to draw back. Something is seen that makes me uncomfortable. Words become unsatisfying. I’ve been there before, so I stay with it and begin to realize that I don’t know. Relaxing a bit, certain possibilities become open to me. There is a chance that if I’m quiet enough, it can work through me. My work is what happens in the course of that process—the encounter between myself, the present moment, and the materials at hand.
