"My work began as an excavation, or archaeology. Finding remnants of contemporary society, allowed me to look with more compassion at our culture. The suburban and mundane, when washed up and washed out, lost some of its threat. The dominant culture rendered by time and the effects of the sea, sun and sand, has been, at once prophetic and mordant. It allowed me to listen to that which had always seemed so loud, in its silence able to speak about its soul, a reminder of what we might already have lost."
