Biosphere 

 

The Biosphere prints are an outgrowth of my three-dimensional work. The ghost-like impressions of mundane materials imply ecological change in the wake environmental challenges. Using a method adapted from Japanese fish printing, I place garbage under silk, gently tapping the surface with ink to copy the contours in order to generate a montage of shapes. Until recently, these works were strictly black and white, but the latest works employ cyan, magenta, and yellow to open up an array of color possibilities, unlocking new viabilities for the viewer to consider.
