My American French Tool etching press factors heavily in my work. Mono-printing is a way of getting textures and marks that have the quality of being untouched by human hand.
Working experimentally, reinventing
the medium is integral to developing
the meaning. However, not finding all
the solutions in a single medium and
as part of an open process, I explore
and incorporate a mix of media. My
has sparked using layered cut paper, embossing, dry pigment, paint, graphite, burns, and found object impressions.
I began looking at dilapidated structures, surfaces, and surroundings of industrial, military, and agricultural buildings through the eye of my camera. Although I do not produce finished photographic works or likenesses, this way of seeing isolates the subject, intensifying my experience of a starting point.
