In my cardboard painting series, I begin the process by habitually collecting cardboard found on the streets of my community. Once my studio is congested with material, I begin to meticulously stack and adhere it together, until large cube-shaped structures are formed. After the gluing process is completed, I use my power tools to deconstruct and disfigure the form. Deliberate cuts, tears, and slices are made to the surface with the ultimate goal being to develop a history that capsulizes and uncovers the materials physicality.
