I create prints and/as objects.
I find myself working at the boundaries of what I do not understand. My work is driven by interests in the intersections of space exploration and war strategies, often visually referencing the celestial, the post-apocalyptic, and the otherworldly. I employ the visual alchemy of printmaking, drawing, and photographic materials to create forms that evoke an experiential and emotional viewing – understood through the meditative act of looking.
Portals is a multi-component project exploring color, chemistry and psychological perception. Portals is made of three sections: 1. the Portal, a series of print variations of a repeated disc intended to explore varied perceptions in texture, surface, color, image, and time; 2. Footnotes, a living collection of prints, providing context to Portals, made from archives, both personal and public, exploring the other worldly, space technologies and the evolution of the V-2 rocket; and 3. Manual: a catalog of Portals, including a photographic reference, the materials, and instructions to create each printed object.
