Maile is an ongoing series of images based on patterns, layers and rules. The rules are fairly simple, the image needs to have the composition of a normal letter envelope. I chose this shape after looking over some images I took and noticed how the odd juxtaposition of patterns, textures and materials created a suggested sense of meaning. In my head I am fascinated by the layers of meaning that can be drawn out of these images; the possible implications behind the "sealed" envelope or possibly the concept of a feminine triangle in a MAILE collection. I see layers and patterns, replication, nuance, symbol, color, concept and game as important elements in the direction of forthcoming work.
