about locus series:

Locus means place and in archaeology it is used to reference the exact location of a find or feature within the excavation trench.

This series was inspired by a blank book of paper that I inherited from an archaeologist. Often starting by drawing playful scribbles, I then go back in painting over in color (like a new archaeological locus), sometimes collaging and transferring photocopied images as well.

Each piece has its sense of place.
