IMPRINTS: Paintings 2003 - 2004
New Work: IMPRINTS IMPRINTS explores the unintentional beauty of patterns whose purposes are driven by function – thumbprints, circuit boards, street grids, and plant cells.

Images in these painting have been appropriated from other sources, enlarged and distorted, taken out of context, and layered with other unrelated image fragments. The resulting patterns overlap and intersect both metaphorically and literally.

In this work there is an obvious theme of the tension between manmade and ‘natural’ environments. But, more broadly, abstraction, color and design are used to explore how meaning is conveyed and distorted – and how much perception affects what we see as truth.
