Recent paintings

A selection of recent paintings completed on site at my residency at the James Castle House in Boise, Idaho.
This imagery is drawn from an ongoing series of collages in which I use fragments of rooms found in interior design magazines and books to construct new compositions. I'm thinking about how the coherence of the previously intact view of the room is disrupted by the cutting and reconjoining of disparate elements. What was once a familiar and legible domestic space becomes something else, and abrupt shifts in perspective, depth, and scale become disorienting.

Mokulito

A selection of mokulito prints. Mokulito or wood lithography is a recently developed technique that is done on plywood instead of the limestone which is typical of traditional lithography. I began researching and experimenting with mokulito in 2018 while I was a teaching intern in the printmaking department at MICA in Baltimore, and began experimenting more with the process while in residence at the James Castle House in Boise, Idaho in 2020.
