Printmaking has held my interest over the years both due to the interrelationship of craft and aesthetic considerations as well as the inevitable surprise embedded in the final pull on any given plate. In each print I build layers with multiple passes through the press. Through this method I gradually discover the path of the gaze as it is directed across the rich colorful environment. The exercise becomes a daunting and exciting challenge. Politically I feel most charged by the environmental issues we as a civilization currently face. The new work explores my self reflection on my place in the landscape, a terrain of unfolding light. By being a member of two print cooperatives, my work thrives with the cooperative nature of the press environment which reenforces a community of conscientious and supportive artists.
