Language and Tactile Objects

I take inspiration form writing and text which I believe points to an ocean of accumulated knowledge. Everything has a strong references to the printing press, each printed texture acknowledges the widespread impact this technological development had on communication and the collective repository of human knowledge. The way that we write, what we attempt to communicate, and how many people we reach depends on the technology that is available to us. Prior to the printing press, books and visual communication artifacts were created by hand like: papyrus scrolls, medieval illuminated manuscripts, hand painted and block printed fabrics. 

For me, making art is the process of exploring the ever-evolving repository on information through the printing processes.  I mimic the texture of early books, textiles, surfaces by layering graphical shapes and textures on flat wall hangings and dress forms.
