This work is experimental for me in many ways. I am carving and printing monotypes using multiple plates/colors to create many layers. I am using bold colors in a break from my usual palette. The mark-making is very satisfying; the physical act of carving an image is very different from painting. In the sculptures, I am building up and carving down into objects that are at once amorphous and defined.
I am representing something from inside that I know is there but cannot see, which in itself is a break from how I learned to make art.. through observation. I have been asking myself many questions.. how do we measure what we cannot see? How do we fight or accept the frailty of the body? How do we translate trauma?
