Their Words Lived On, 2022 (Collagraph)

The work is a gestural venture away from three-dimensional art towards a nuanced graphic that retains the structural feel of sculpture through the use of rhythm, repetition and a relentlessness of color.

The materials employed are a multi-generational travel through time of personal items with a bearing towards universal understanding. The forty year old deerskin, the twenty year old Japanese fabric, the newly opened carton that held Scotch for the holidays, the unsized kitakata paper from Kochi, Japan cached for fifteen years all combine to form a dreamlike landscape of hills, clouds and projectiles lulling the viewer to see something hopeful and to change the course of what could be.
