Each piece: 72" tall by 36" wide. Year of creation: 2010. Archival Chromographic print with one or two color screen print overlay.
My latest series of photo-based prints is entitled Holding Pattern.
My subjects are attractive women in their mid 20s to late 30s, and
superimposed upon their faces are monochromatic decorative patterns, the
combination of which brings to the surface ideas of symmetry, objects
of decoration and femininity. This is the start of a much larger body of
work that will soon appear in my paintings and ultimately installation
work. The final works are displayed via archival heat transfer print on
board, and I hope to experiment soon with the sizing and placement of
the subjects as well as the positioning of the images within the
Experimentation and evolution are essential to the development of all
artists. In my opinion, an artist’s worth is based on his or her
ability to grow and change with his or her surroundings and to also
inspire transformation and progress in others.
The future of my work is
in finding a balance between the precision my artistic approach and the
paradox presented in the questions I explore. I am continually
fascinated by the apparent contrast between new and old and I strive to
find a place where preservation meets innovation. While employing the
modernity of clean lines and bold colors, the familiarity of icons
plucked from popular culture’s past along with interpretations drawn
from my own experiences, I hope to accurately depict my experience and
define my voice as a member of contemporary American society. Within
this juxtaposition of contrasting forms and subject matter, I hope to
impart a sense of originality, an astute commentary on modern society
and the creation of a unique graphic vision for the future.
