Artist Statement:

In this series of prints, I hope to abstractly illustrate the tension between the freedom and confinement in our everyday lives. These abstracted landscapes or “mindscapes” use textured materials, such as flocking and thread, to emphasize the importance of touching and being touched. Layers of black, gray and white lithographic tusche washes illustrate the dark chaotic clouds of my thoughts, depression and sadness. Colourful intaglio patterns blanket the opposite side to illustrate the structure and habits that we need in our lives in order to create order. The circular repetitive patterns and sewing signify the obsessive compulsiveness of our thought process. This work was created in the spaces between the peace and chaos of raising my autistic son and the suicide of my father.

Artist’s Talk: March 17 at 6:00 pm. Reception to follow.
