I’m playing with what can happen inside and outside variations on themes as they continue to reconfigure over time. My process comes out of a love of pattern, still life, antiquities and the underlying passion for color. The basic premise is beauty, making the world beautiful because the world is not always beautiful. Combining images requires a separate printing for each step. Every color impacts the composition as the layers build. What will happen when I play with and overlay different colors as several things happen at once? Structure, deconstruction, repetition and layering is playful, improvisational and full of surprises. There is an element of mystery and I can depend on printmaking to give me back a result that I couldn’t have seen at the beginning.
