artist statement

Through the use of nontraditional matrices and processes, my collective body of work hinges on the beauty and poetics of process, while specifically addressing the aspects of failure.

My background in psychology along with years of experience working in commercial print studios informs my interest in systems and the subsequent glitches. Serving as the point of entry for my research, the moiré pattern simultaneously embodies the limitations of our optical systems, as well as errors occurring within the printmaking process. My research explores to reconfigure the aesthetic hierarchy by striving to create and highlight anomalies occurring in systems.
