My work is interested in gesture and symbolism to express spirituality. Through the use of the hand and the figure I'm able to express human emotion, and with lush natural imagery, I hope my work takes on an otherworldly quality to convey a veneration of the natural world. I also include visual references to symbolism from the Hebrew tradition. These recent works are an exploration in monotype printmaking, which I fell in love with during Print Media: Special Topics with Associate Professor Meyer. The ability to manipulate painting into print is unique to monotype, and I love how the quality of the dry water-based pigment is reawakened when pressed into damp paper.
