"The Paperweight series came out of a need to transition from the weight that Heap was taking up. I wanted to make drawings that did the same thing as Heap in terms of marking a space and claiming it. It’s a very literal way of saying “this is a drawing” and “this is a rock that marks a space in the drawing.” I extended the process of layering and creating edges in order to show the history of this personal sediment. This began to activate site in a more emotional way."
