Looking back and looking inward…these prints use pieces of creative time and represent whole explorations, inquiries, and investigations of multiple subjects throughout the last years of my printmaking practice. They are pieces of repurposed prints, assembled to create new meaning.
Ultimately, the essence is emphasized, rather than the figurative. The visual language becomes more abstract. The natural world, its complexities, and mysteries provide a mirror for learning.
These collages serve to construct images of feelings, emotions, and symbols, this time using pieces of the past, building wisps, ephemeral thoughts, haikus of ideas. Each piece carries a story, but is used in a new way to distill, rather than to narrate.
The elements carry the past…the resolution acknowledges the present.
