I first began using photocopy in 1987 as an act of rebellion against my own realistic figure paintings. I made a little booklet, entitled "So Fuck You", containing small photocopied images of my large paintings, accompanied by irreverent phrases like, "another fucking meaningful gesture". It was liberating. The inherent enlarging capacity of the technology led to the large-scale gridded wall installations, images of giant genitals. These were widely exhibited, culminating with the "Bad Girls" show at The New Museum of Contemporary Art, in 1994.

More recently I have returned to photocopy because the medium is carbon toner, which fits within the parameters of my "Symmetrical Procedures" --symmetry and carbon mediums--that I began in 2003.
