1. The Blessing

From birth onward, we engage in a cyclical exchange of shaping and being shaped by the environments around us. The ever-mutable passage of time renders all moments fleeting, and thus our experiences become amalgamations of these fragments. The effect of time on our environmental and existential state is the locus of my visual work. Memories, dreams, reveries, and the imperfect machinery of the mind ebb and flow between one another through dense layers of process. My content is culled from an extensive codex of landscape, architecture, and artifacts that I have amassed though my life and travels. Compiled in sketchbooks for later use, these images become the building blocks of prints and larger works. I utilize a wide spectrum of printmaking techniques, both traditional and experimental, to infuse a rich sense of history into the work. Through printmaking, elements are able to be repeated across several pieces, giving them the quality of a recurring dream or half-forgotten memory. I gravitate towards working in print because of the physical alchemy of printmaking; the genesis of the multiple becomes a visual metaphor for eroding cycles of experience.
