February 5 - 29, 2016
Everyday I walk across the streets of New York and notice the urban markings and various surfaces and gravely textures of the urban floor. The streets are embedded with layers of materials, cracks, and patterns of use. I find visual inspiration in the way these elements interact but also I am drawn to the idea of 'the ground' as a symbolic support, part of my relationship with something bigger than myself.
In my recent project Groundscapes, I used sandpaper to emboss wood and generated many relief prints to use as raw collage material. As the prints are layered on top of drawings, traditional perspective becomes juxtaposed with textured shapes and spatial relationships are shifted and enlivened by the printed surface.
