SMALL SUISEKI STONE SCULPTURES-
This body of work is focused on the manipulation of small basalt boulders, and shares it's name, Suiseki, with the Japanese tradition of stone appreciation. Interested in revealing the unseen surfaces and textures hidden within, I dissect and reconfigure the stones' slices to create a sense of movement, growth and expansion. Through my interaction with these stones, they become more like entities and less like rubble. The resulting objects possess a bold quietness which inspires contemplation and introspection.
Named after waves, animals, mountains, etc., each sculpture is reminiscent of a piece of the larger natural world.
Basalt and wood, 2017,
Printed in a combination of relief and intaglio techniques. Pieces of basalt stone (lava rock) are run through a traditional printing press. The stone cracks under the tremendous pressure, with each divide and fissure being captured on the paper’s surface.
Prints are unframed, unless otherwise noted.
PAINTINGS AND INK DRAWINGS-
These pieces feature a combination of sumi ink, indigo pigment and acrylic paint on paper or canvas. Priced from $100-$500.
AUGMENTED TOPOGRAPHY PRINTS
Each location in this series has a certain significance to me. The process of using their topographic textures to create abstract compositions unearths a spiritual element of these places that otherwise remains hidden.
