Folding Screens

Free standing screens are two panel bi-folding and four-folding panels that are connected with double jointed hinges. They have two developed sides. There is a complementary relationship between the “front” and “back” of each. The patterns and images have varied cultural roots. The images are visual accumulations of experiences, thoughts and feelings with art and art historic references. There is an evolution in design and image that comes from experimentation; change as an ongoing process.

The screen structures are of contemporary materials, but the mechanics of the hinges that allow the panels to move in 180 degrees are from traditional Japanese design and craft.
