My prints are the results of an inquiry; the notes of my research, and the answers to my questions. I am fascinated by the unseen physical forces that can make themselves known through their interaction with the visible world. I work to capture them, to manipulate them, and to use them to manipulate my materials.
Electrostatics: Monotypes & Photopolymer Gravures
Exploring the creation, manipulation, and visualization of static electricity.
Sediment & Flow:
Exploring the distribution of fine particles in differing liquids over curved surfaces.
Exploring the manipulation of magnetic field lines.
Rocks and Other Landscapes
I also love to explore the abstract elements of nature...in particular value patterns, simplified shape and line, and the complex forms of rock piles and formations. In my printmaking, as opposed to my painting, I tend toward the monochromatic, if there is any color at all. Painting satisfies my exploration of color, where printmaking allows a greater focus on process and mark-making.
