22×30 monotype, 2016
My work investigates anatomical form, naturally occurring geometries and biological processes. From corporeal structures to geological formations, I seek to identify systematic relationships and interpret these complex landscapes on both a microscopic and macroscopic scale; ambiguous in a way that one could be interpreted as the other.
The additive and subtractive qualities of the printmaking process communicate my desire to dissect layer by the layer the information that makes up the whole. To better understand it, I resurrect a visual experience from a plate or carved surface, to ink, draw, paint and breathe life into a growing, living organism of sorts.
