My American French Tool printing press factors heavily in my work. Monoprinting is a way of getting a range from textures and marks that appear to be untouched by human hand to highly delineated forms.
Working experimentally, reinventing
the medium is integral to developing
the meaning. Not finding all the solutions
in a single medium, I explore and incorporate a mix of media. In addition
to oil based inks, my one-thing-leads
-to-another approach has sparked using acrylic paint, dry pigment, graphite, embossing, burns, stencils, found object impressions, archival digital images,
and layered cut paper
My work has gradually moved away
from the wall and the limits of a rectangular substrate. This third dimension requires developing construction methods and introduces light and shadow into the mix.
