"PUZZLINGS" are made with segments of photocopies printed with black carbon toner on either neon or white paper. Sometimes the prints are just shades of grey, while others are printed from a range of materials and objects placed on the glass of the copier, ranging from crumpled paper, to a scrub brush. I use the enlargement and density features of the copy machine along with other techniques for varying the quality of the print. The arrangement process is intuitive, at first, but as I see a figure emerge I both develop and reveal each character to have a life of its own. The carbon medium of the toner is what fits this new work into my commitment, since 2003, to use carbon and symmetry as parameters for my practice.
