By combining water based and non-traditional serigraphy, I create abstract expressionist monoprints. I use lighting and the aesthetics of digital media to create innovative sculptural pieces. The pieces hybridize the tactile nature of my tools: the mist-like removal of screen filler with a pressure washer, the playful vibrance of caran d’ache and the layered transparency of screen ink.
My inspiration is best summed up in a quote from Tom Waits, “We are buried beneath the weight of information, which is being confused with knowledge; quantity is being confused with abundance and wealth with happiness.” Utilizing the concept of printmaking’s ability to create repetition of information, I subvert that to focus on issues of truth, the redaction of truth and how the viewer must work through the noise of media to arrive at meaning.
