ARTIST STATEMENT: I make large-scale prints that depict abstracted landscapes. I enlarge small moments from one piece to form the basis of another, creating vast, dreamlike spaces. Finding the big in the small is a metaphor for daydreaming in my work. I begin with small details from past artworks or from simple observational drawings, scan the drawings and alter them digitally, enlarge and transfer them onto etching or lithographic plates, and change them through various printmaking processes. For my intaglio plates, I etch and re-etch them, scrape away, open bite, build back up, reshape, layer. For my lithographs, I pour and paint with solvents to create and erase marks. I alter the images over many iterations, allowing for landscapes to emerge and transform as I alternate between letting the space reveal itself and authoritatively shaping it. Creating a landscape in this way echoes both chemical and physical geological processes such as erosion. I feel that I am not rendering or drawing a space, but instead making the scene itself with acid, metal, and physical force. In the end, the resulting pieces no longer reflect their original sources. The prints depict abstracted, emotional, and psychological landscapes, peopled with strange figures, objects, and architectural elements. They convey emotions open to interpretation: sadness, contemplation, awe, calm, solitude, hope, or a sense of searching.
