Artist’s Statement
With origins in the preservation of thoughts, ideas and events, I am inspired by printmaking’s inherent connections to time and memory. In my work, I explore loss and remembrance while employing various combinations of traditional and contemporary printmaking techniques which work to simultaneously omit and augment details. My subjects, stoic white silhouettes, faceless and ghoulish, find themselves dissolving into a misty atmosphere of dust motes and stardust or merging into the emptiness of blank paper. Fleshy bubblegum and hazy fog become the colors of flawed and faded memories, while the distorted figures echo the uneasiness and irrelevancy that comes with feeling disconnected from one’s past.
