My art practice involves three different printmaking techniques and projects at any given moment, allowing me to dynamically alternate between projects without getting blocked. Each technique shows a different approach towards my subject matter, the angles and perspectives of the Human Body.
The images of hands exploring skin introduce me to touch, sensation and the protective shield that can also be critical and painful. This is most expressive in reduction Linocut.
Secondly I explore the human face, which represents what an individual want to have revealed. The face as a mask that we create, some faces are more translucent than others. The smoothness of offset Monotype works unless a person’s face becomes the mirror of their life. When every wrinkle maps out their struggles and hardships I chose black and white stone Lithography to depict them with as much detail as possible.
Finally I turned inward and began a journey to discover my body’s interior landscape. By including emotions, feelings and illness into my personal study, I developed textures and patterns through obsessive daily drawing. Each pattern is hand-drawn on Lithography plates and print in color in different combinations with each other until the results are fully satisfying.
