This series began back in 2011 when I was crumpling and tossing away sketch papers in my studio. I'd been using patterned wrapping paper as backgrounds, foregrounds and folded pedestals for my figurine still lifes. I swerved into this new thread of ideas when I suddenly became aware how beautiful the discarded, crumpled paper shapes were. The shapes took me in an entirely new direction. I became fascinated with the random forms within each crumpled piece.
