GRIT

I began creating this series of used sandpaper collages during the Covid-19 stay-at-home order of 2020. Each collage is made of sandpaper I collected from the studios of fellow artists, woodworkers, and neighbors. I had the urge to move away from the more minimalist, architectural focused sandpaper collages I had been creating in the years leading up to this point. I spent hours each day, lost in the different landscapes, ripping and cutting from piles of discarded, colored, used sandpaper. It was a way for me to be productive, distracted, and most of all creative during these long days at home.
